WOOD-RIDGE, NJ -- The Superintendent's Report featured an update on the ongoing construction and storm damage at July's Wood-Ridge Board of Education meeting on Monday.

According to Nicholas Cipriano, Chief School Administrator, major construction is continuing at the high school and is "on target to be completed by the start of the school year." He noted there was some "very minor" damage to two classrooms and the air conditioning in the auditorium from the severe storm that came through last Friday. He said the school is working with their engineers and contractors to repaid the damage.  In addition, the school will be replacing the panel to the security system at the main entrance to the building.

He also provided an update on the gas leak that happened last week, when a contractor hit a gas line during work. He explained it was "under control in an hour." He explained that they made alterations to the plans "so it doesn't happen again."

Cipriano also explained that they are waiting on the permits for the handicap lift to make the courtyard handicap accessible.

Cipriano delayed presenting his report on the student safety data system until the August meeting, as President Albie Nieves and Vice-President Joseph Biamonte were unable to attend Monday's meeting.

The next meeting of the Wood-Ridge Board of Education is scheduled for Monday, August 27.
