The world language office and the instructional kitchen will be relocated and the space will be used for the new main office and entrance to the building. The current front office will be repurposed into conference rooms, offices, and instructional kitchen.
Enhancement of building security cameras and card reader access to exterior doors - Current security cameras will be replaced and additional cameras will be added to improve security inside and outside the school. Additional exterior doors will receive card reader access.
Renovation of the Learning Commons - What previously was referred to as the media center, the Learning Commons at Breton will be renovated to provide an environment that can support teaching and learning in multiple formats and will include enhanced educational technology that supports learning.
Repaving of the front parking lot - The parking lot in the front of the building will be repaved during the summer.
