The Crossett School Board hosted a public hearing Monday night for those who wanted to question or comment on the Crossett School District’s facilities master plan.

During the hearing, Superintendent of Schools Gary Williams went over the master plan for each facility, stating when repairs were to be scheduled.

This year, the Crossett High School field house and the administration building were both scheduled for new roofing systems, but because the current ones are holding up so well those projects will be put off, Williams said.

The superintendent said the maintenance department has done a great job of preventative maintenance and that those buildings will be monitored closely. Projects scheduled for 2021 included work at the Crossett Learning Center and bus garage. Crossett Middle School is scheduled for 2025.

Williams also discussed the plan to put asphalt down in an area behind the middle school that is currently gravel in 2021.

No one in the audience had questions or comments and the board approved the master plan unanimously.

In other news, the board approved the use of facilities for Project Graduation and voted to waive the facilities fee.

Project Graduation is a program offered as a drug- and alcohol-free alternative to post-graduation parties.

It is organized and supervised by adults.

Crossett has played host to Project Graduation several times in recent years.
