Pekin (Ill.) Community High School District 303 plans to carry out a $10.7 million renovation of its high school campus.

The Pekin Daily Times reports that the work at Pekin Community High School will be carried out this summer.

District Superintendent Danielle Owens says contractors will renovate the school's canopied entrance, add an entrance vestibule as a security measure, and remodel several offices.

"The canopy entrance is our main student entrance," she said. "It's a focal point of our campus and every person that comes to campus comes through those doors. It was important for us to redo it because of a safety issue."

Other planned projects: replacing several roofs, remodeling the gymnasium floor, replacing the gym’s wooden bleachers with plastic seats, renovating the weight room and fitness area, and improving the HVAC system.
