They’ve been unused, overgrown, and crumbling eyesores for years, but soon the former tennis courts between Lincoln-Roosevelt School and Franklin School in Succasunna will be removed and replaced with pavilions for outdoor classrooms and other uses.
 
The Roxbury school board, on Monday, approved spending $1.4 million for site preparation and installation of the pavilions. The money will come from the district’s capital reserve account and the work will be done by Ben Shaffer Recreation of Jefferson.
 
“There are basically going to be two pavilion-like structures,” said Roxbury Schools Business Administrator Joseph Mondanaro. He said the open-sided shelters will be about 50 feet wide by about 100 feet long and likely will be divided with walls to create four classrooms. The proposed new use for the old tennis courts was recommended by a committee of district “administrators, teachers, principals and various stakeholders who are going sit down and tweak the design,” Mondanaro said.
