And It's All Yours For $99.9M

From the public schools:

$99.9M Sought for School Facilities Needs

The Board of Education got its first look at the Superintendent's proposed Capital Budget for fiscal year 2011 at the September 10 Board meeting. The $99.9M proposal includes a 100-seat addition to Bellows Spring Elementary, dance studio additions to Centennial and Hammond high schools, and a comprehensive renovation of Atholton High School. Other projects include a Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) treatment facility for Triadelphia Ridge Elementary and Folly Quarter Middle, and a new 443-seat Northeastern Elementary School scheduled to open in August 2013.

FY11 funding is sought for several systemic projects as well, including a renovation/addition to the central administration building and renovations at Hammond Elementary/Middle, and Stevens Forest, Thunder Hill, Bollman Bridge, Longfellow, and Phelps Luck elementary schools.

The Board will hold a public hearing and work session on the capital budget at 7:30 pm on Thursday, September 24, before giving preliminary approval to the proposal.
