FRAMINGHAM – Several changes are being made to Keefe Technical High School in Framingham, this summer.
The improvements were discussed at the South Middlesex Regional Vocational High School Committee meeting Monday night, July 22.
Carpeting will be replacing tile floors in the library and some hallways, whereas tile will replace the carpeting in the legal & protective and health career departments.
The auditorium will be receiving new seats and carpeting, replacing the originals installed 40 years ago.
A new classroom for the carpentry department is being built and prepared by the carpentry students themselves, and new ducts and insulation are being installed in the electrical department.
Superintendent Jon Evans said 13 new staff will start in August.
They include new math teachers, an ELL teacher, and a new nurse.
