Jane Lew Elementary School will soon be getting much needed upgrades.

The School Building Authority is giving the district more than $3 million for renovations and expansion.

The county will use $1 million to add new classrooms and make safety upgrades to the building, including a new sprinkler system and a mantrap at the school's entrance.

Superintendent Joseph Mace said this is the last in a series of steps to improve schools.

"That will complete our second 10-year plan, which is 20 years of comprehensive plan work in Lewis County. I think we'll be the first county to complete twenty," Mace said.

The district plans to demolish the older building still in use, but not until all students can be moved into the main building.
