Frankfort HS is one step closer to renovations

Plans for the future

FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) – Community Schools of Frankfort administrators are narrowing in on final plans for renovations at Frankfort High School.

On Tuesday, the school board met with a construction manager to discuss various options.

The $25 million project under consideration would involve fixing plumbing and electrical problems in the aging school building, as well as adding classroom space and a safer entryway to the school.

District officials are making sure they get the most bang for their buck.

“We have to do the electric. We have to do all that mechanical work, so that’s kind of that basis of $25 million. But that’s why we hired a construction manager, to go through with a real sharp pencil to find ways that we can get as much as we can for that $25 million,” said Superintendent Don DeWeese.

The board will meet again later this month for more discussion. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
