The ventilation improvements at Edison are likely to cost as much as $100,000, primarily because of the age of the building, according to architects. The district will use some of its Covid relief funding to help pay for the upgrades.

In 2018, the district launched an $80.8 million building renovation effort that has upgraded all the district's 16 school buildings. The improvements include security vestibules, updated ventilation systems, new windows, upgraded gymnasiums and new roofs and parking lots.

The pandemic aid has enabled the district to earmark a large amount of the federal money for new ventilation systems.
