Haveford school board approves soil spending for high school stadium project

    The high school stadium renovation project is Haverford is on time and under budget, despite the approval last night by the school board to spend $21,155 on a soil change order.

    The current soil at the site doesn’t pack well, and in order to keep the project moving, a layer of rocks under the soil will fix the issue beneath the stadium’s artificial turf.

    And in what might be the best reason for voting against an action, School Board President Denis Gray opposed a change order for the Coopertown Modular Trailer Relocation Project because, “I don’t like trailers.” The order to switch four doors and frames on portable classrooms was approved by the rest of the board, as Haverford-Havertown Patch reports, and the classrooms have already been relocated to Coopertown Elementary School.
