A plan to upgrade the geothermal systems at Middletown's high schools and middle schools, as well as roofing replacements throughout the district, will be presented during Tuesday's Board of Education meeting. 

Spiezle Architectural Group, along with Wilentz Goldman and Spitzer will outline the $32.3 million of improvements when the board meets at 8 p.m. in High School North's auditorium

If the plan is approved, the district anticipates receiving nearly $13 million, or 40 percent of the project's cost, in a state grant. The remainder, $19.4 million, would be paid through local dollars. 

The board is expected to approve a special March 11 school district election for residents to vote on the project. 

In addition to the geothermal system replacements at the high schools and middle schools, roofing replacements are proposed for all schools except Harmony and Port Monmouth elementary, according to the referendum resolution.
