Sheridan County School District 2 is asking for emergency funds from the state to repair the roof of the Early Building.

The roof was badly damaged by last year's hail storms. District Facilities Director Julie Carroll says there are now fairly extensive leaks in the building.

In a letter to the Wyoming School Facilities Department, District Superintendent Craig Dougherty said the roof damage is not covered by warranty, and the district is not sure how much of the damage will be covered by the district's insurance.

He asks that the Wyoming School Facilities Commission consider approving a release of emergency capital construction funds for roof repair. The commission will meet April 23 and 24 in Riverton. The facilities director said no firm cost estimates are available yet, but the district is asking for a little over $1 million.

District 2 trustees at their meeting this week authorized proceeding with a professional services agreement with Malone Belton Abel Architects for the project.
