GENEVA, Ala. (WDHN) — Prep work began for the largest infrastructure project in the Geneva City School district this week.
Mulkey Elementary School, which was built in the early 1960s, will undergo a six-million-dollar upgrade. The upgrade will include additional classrooms along with a new cafeteria and gym.
Geneva City Schools superintendent Ron Snell said the school will be retrofitted with modern security measures with six entryways into the building being eliminated. Visitors will have to be buzzed in.
“Every day we see something in the country that makes us concerned. Our main goal is to make the school as safe as possible.” Snell said.
According to Snell, the objective is to increase security and bring the classrooms into a 21st-century learning and teaching environment.
