Edinburgh schools to consider $2 million in upgrades

The Edinburgh school district needs to replace a broken boiler and renovate decades-old locker rooms at its middle and high school building, and officials plan to borrow money to make those and other upgrades.

The school board unanimously approved borrowing up to $2
