OLCHS receives $50k grant for school maintenance

Updated: March 11, 2013 6:12AM



Oak Lawn Community High School recently received $50,000 as part of Illinois’ School Maintenance Grant Program

Gov. Pat Quinn announced last year that the state had made $50 million available for the program.

The state matching grant program provides up to $50,000 in matching funds for the maintenance of buildings for educational purposes, program officials said.

Oak Lawn Community High School District 229 must match the funds. Assistant Supt. Rick Hendricks proposed to use this money to replace sections of the school’s roof, with an estimated cost of $1 million.

The board authorized the roofing project listed in the fiscal year 2012 school project maintenance grant.

The work is expected to be done by Aug. 31.
