FARMINGTON — The Bloomfield School District Board of Education has approved the second phase of a multi-year project to replace the roof at Mesa Alta Junior High School.

Chuck Culpepper, the district's director of operations and assessment, said board members on Tuesday approved an agreement with Cooperative Educational Services for about $192,000 to continue the three-year process of replacing the school's roof.

Board members approved an agreement last summer for the first phase of the project, which cost about $250,000. The three-year project is expected to cost a total of about $800,000.

Culpepper said the second phase will replace portions of the roof over the school’s library, offices and four classrooms.

The project was divided into three phases to avoid draining the district's capital outlay fund. The fund pays for work on the district’s facilities and infrastructure.
