THE JEFFERSON High School annex is one step closer to its demise.
The city board of education (BOE) approved a $27,900 expenditure Thursday to demolish the high school classroom annex. Superintendent John Jackson said the building will be “free and clear” to be razed once servers are removed from that building and the power is disconnected.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if that building isn’t completely gone before Christmas,” Jackson said. “That would be my guess.”
Demolition was set to begin this week.
Jefferson is replacing the annex with a two-story classroom building — one portion of a $25 million package for new construction. Other projects include a new high school kitchen and gym and a new elementary school academic wing, cafeteria and kitchen.
