The Manatee County (Fla.) district is making major upgrades to Palmetto High School in Palmetto

The $39 million project calls for replacing four classroom buildings and the cafeteria, and adding onto the administration building, reports The Bradenton Herald

A two-story classroom building, surrounded by courtyards, is planned for the center of campus. Inside the building will be seven new science classrooms and labs, four business education classrooms, 17 general classes, and an art lab, the district said.

Changes to the administration building will include a new lobby, reception area, conference room and a new front door to the campus.

Funds for the project will come from local sales tax revenue.

Palmetto High School opened in 1957 and underwent campus-wide renovations in 1999. In 2010, the district grew the campus with an auditorium, and 20 classrooms and labs.

Schenkel Shultz Architects is the architect, and The Gilbane Building Company is the builder.
