The Penns Valley School District is pursuing renovations to the original locker rooms in the senior and junior high school building.

School officials are considering a draft bid for proposed renovations and two alternatives that would include building expansions.

According to the district’s website, officials are refining plans and seeking input from educators, coaches, administrators, parents and community members.

Anyone interested in providing input can do so by contacting Robert Miller, the district’s director of physical plant, at rmiller@pennsvalley.org.

The district is expected to seek bids for the project in April, with a goal of starting construction by June.
