Phase 2 of the school upgrades continues. Bob Olson, Director of Building and Grounds for the Owatonna School District, was a guest on Am 1390's Talk of the Town to discuss the upcoming changes.

Today another walk through day was planned for the Middle School. Olson and others walk through each part of construction with the contractor inspecting things such as doors working properly, carpet, windows, paint etc.

Lincoln and McKinley remain under construction with the new gymnasium, music room and art room. These projects remain on target for sometime in January or February completion dates.

Visitors to Owatonna Schools will want to remember to bring along an I.D. from now on. A new type of security screening/visitor management system which requires an I.D. is being tested and will be phased into all the schools over the next two weeks. Olson explains how it will work.
