The Hampton school board has approved contracts to repaint the school library and computer lab and install new carpeting.

The contracts, approved Monday, call for paying L&L Flooring $9,950 for carpeting and W.F. Scott Decorating $2,875 for painting.

Superintendent Tom Berg said the work is expected to be done by the middle of July, and new stage curtains will be installed in the next week or so.He said a state maintenance grant will cover half the costs of the upgrades.

In other action, the board approved the re-employment of non-teaching staff for the next year, and approved a three-year contract agreement with teachers that calls for a 3 percent increase in pay, and another 2 percent toward health insurance costs.
