The RTR School Board held a work session meeting on Wednesday, June 14 to discuss the results of reports on inspec­tions of the 1903 and 1918 build­ings on the high school grounds and results of the roof inspec­tions at all three locations. Head Custodian Jerry Stefanick led a group of officials and school board members on a tour of the 1903 building and the basement of the 1918 building before the meeting. The 1903 building is no longer used, while the 1918 building houses the district of­fice, bookkeeping office and caf­eteria as well as classrooms and storage.
On hand to discuss the find­ings was architect Jim Wilson of Wendel Companies. Wilson was the lead architect preparing the proposal on the failed bond.
