ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) - Students and teachers at enterprise high school will still have to deal with some construction on campus.
Enterprise high school has needed repairs to its roof and stone-work for several years now,
Thanks to a lawsuit settled a few weeks ago, they can finally get to work.
"Our kids have done great. At the end of last year when we put fencing up and they...for them it's something they don't really think about, our teachers as well,” said Enterprise High School Principal Brent Harrison.
It's hard not to notice the fencing surrounding Enterprise High School these days.
Most of the exterior is requiring a renovation, even though the school is less than 10 years old.
Soon after opening in 2010, the school started having problems with the roof leaking, and then the decorative cast stone began cracking.
The school system filed a law suit back in 2015, and reached a settlement in June.
Brasfield & Gorrie has agreed to repair the roof leaks and cast stone issues.
Construction is underway - just in time for the first school bell to ring.
"There may be some issues,” said Superintendent Greg Faught. “I mean it's going to be a construction site for the next 10-12 months. We're hoping it's not too disruptive, but it's something that needs to be repaired."
The superintendent says they hope to have the repairs done within the next year, so that by the start of next school year, the fences can come down.
Enterprise students go back to school Monday.
