Preschoolers will have a carpet-like material called Powerbond under their feet when the Miller-Driscoll School renovation project is completed. The school building committee approved changing the new flooring in all classrooms from carpet tiles to Powerbond at its meeting on April 7. The use of vinyl composition tiles, although favored by the committee’s educational advisers, was rejected. The vote was 7-2 in favor of Powerbond. VCT will be used, however, in the school’s hallways.
The decision came down to maintenance and the future cost of that maintenance.
