CHAPEL HILL – Members of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools board meet Thursday to discuss how to improve aging school facilities.

Many schools in the area are more than 40 years old. Others are at full capacity, requiring multiple mobile classrooms on site to accommodate all students.

And a study of 10 of the district’s oldest schools show most need a full overhaul of the lighting, heating and air conditioning systems.

CHCCS board members will receive a report on conditions throughout the district, and discuss how to plan and fund repairs.

The board will also hear a presentation on the state’s new Read to Achieve program which goes into effect this year.

The school board meets at 7:00 the Lincoln Center on South Merritt Mill Road.
