“Thank you to the community members who came out and exercised their right to vote on this capital project. This work will not only enhance our school safety, it will address critical building deficiencies across the District,” Superintendent Dr. James Franchini said.

The project will include enhancements to every building the District owns and operates. In the coming months, architects will prepare plans for the project which will be submitted to the State Education Department for approval.
