Before teachers left for summer break the school looked different.
There are now new bathrooms, ceiling tiles and light fixtures which teachers say give the school a warm and welcoming look.
Craig County School Superintendent Kelly Wilmore is grateful for the change. Wilmore says he asked the Craig County Board of Supervisors for $5.4 million dollars but the county says they didn't have the funds.
Instead Wilmore came up with another plan with the county to pay for lights, ceiling tiles and a new roof and air conditioning for the high school. It cost just under $300 thousand dollars.
The labor to install the tiles and ceiling equipment was completed by volunteers.
Craig County schools have class on Monday August 18th.
