ELKHART Elkhart Community Schools are figuring out what to do with the $47 million they’ll receive thanks to referendums voters passed earlier this month.

The Elkhart Truth reports one of the first projects will be to install secure door locks that allow teachers to lock classroom doors from the inside, without opening the door.

They are also upgrading the 40-year-old PA systems at Central and Memorial.

By October, the district hopes to replace the roofs at North Side, Hawthorne, and Central.

Bigger construction projects are also on the table, along with busing an transportation. The district hasn't made any announcements yet about how they plan to address those concerns.
