Last year, Washington County Public Schools received $1.4 million in upgrades and maintenance, he said.
Additional funding at the state and county levels helped the school system increase the number of projects it will complete in the next few months.
"They put a high priority on providing adequate facilities for students," he said.
Michael said the funding was necessary to help the county catch up on projects that have been needed.
"We still have many projects, probably $88 (million) to $90 million in projects, that are backlogged," he said.
The most costly project this summer will be the removal of asbestos tile and the replacement of lights at Williamsport High School.
The school's lighting system needed to be replaced and improved, Michael said. That could not be done without disturbing the school's ceiling tiles, which are made of asbestos.
Those tiles will be removed as part of a project that will cost nearly $1 million.
The construction of a fenced lot across from Williamsport Elementary School for a bus depot is also on the list of summer projects.
Michael said that because the school system received complaints from area residents, the depot project has been put on hold.
"We're looking for alternate lots and additional solutions," he said.
A bid received for the fencing was about $10,000.
At some schools, open space is being turned into additional classrooms using partitions, Michael said.
"We can change something once used for something else and turn it into some additional classroom space," he said. "The goal is to get everything up and ready before school begins."
