CHATHAM, NJ - Progress is being made on various capital improvement projects for the School District of the Chathams, it was reported on Monday night at the reorganization meeting of the BOE.

Peter Daquila, the board administrator/secretary, gave a brief update on the renovation of the high school auditorium, the addition of STEM classes to the Chatham Middle School, the construction of the new central office behind the high school, and the addition of four new classrooms at Milton Avenue School.

"Due to the last few weeks of extreme cold weather, not too much has happened on the outside projects," Daquila said. "The contractor at Milton was able to make his connection to the sanitary sewer line. With the warm weather this week, each of the contractors should be able to resume their outside work.
