Corby gather to review the blueprints for High School South’s updated boiler room.

August 24, 2018-- As part of Toms River Regional Schools’ Rebuilding Our Schools Initiative and corresponding ESIP program, old and outdated boilers at High School South are being replaced with five new efficient models. Led by the district’s facilities team including Capital Projects Engineer Mark Wagner and Facilities Engineer Dharm Blatt, the boiler room space has been cleared and readied for installation.

Yesterday, school and district administrators, as well as Board of Education members, met to discuss the progress and review blueprints for the updated boiler room layout.

The self-funding ESIP program was vigorously pursued by the district at the direction of the board, and will save Toms River taxpayer’s $17.8 million while implementing necessary upgrades to school facilities.
