Remodeling of the junior high school building in Jim Thorpe to convert it to elementary school use moved nearer accomplishment yesterday with approval by the State Department of Public Instruction of an estimated cost of $190,000 of the project.
Included in the estimate approved by the state are: general construction, $102,645; electrical, $9,600; heating and ventilation, $5,000; and plumbing, $10,000. The total structure cost was placed at $129,245.
