Butte's middle school is getting some renovations this summer and upgrades to its security.

The work being done at East Middle School is part of a $35 million bond issue that was approved by voters two years ago to improve security at Butte's elementary schools and make upgrades to the middle school.

“It's amazing, it's amazing, I can hardly wait, I’m so excited for it. They're doing a phenomenal and they're moving fast,” said Butte Superintendent Judy Jonart.

The entire project is expected to be completed by 2022.
