The Calhoun County school system has reportedly received over $700,000 to upgrade the Pleasant Hill Elementary School. Calhoun was one of 17 counties receiving special funds distributed by the School Building Authority last Monday.

The "needs" grants came from a $55 million dollar allocation, although 47 counties had requested $200 million for improvements. The School Building Authority put $8 million in a contingency fund in case there is a budget shortfall next year. Video lottery is supposed to pump money into the "needs" fund, but it is unclear what it will generate.

The $700,000 plus grant for Pleasant Hill will be used to repair and upgrade ongoing problems with the building, including an elevator. The school completed much-needed improvements on its sanitation system.
