A publication from the Interagency Committee on School Construction lists the projects that will receive funding in the 2017 fiscal year.
The Summary of Project Requests & Approvals reports an FY 2017 school construction allocation of $368 million from the State with funding for 208 out of 263 project requests.
The $368 million consists of $280 million FY 2017 new bond authorization, $45 million in prior-year reverted funding, and $43 million of grant funding for counties with a large amount of enrollment growth or a high number of relocatable classrooms.
156 of the 208 projects funded are categorized as systemic renovations. Systemic renovations are the renovation, replacement or enhancement of a specific building system that will extend the useful life of the school facility for a minimum of fifteen years. Funding for systemic renovations represents approximately 38% – more than a third- of the state’s total spending on school construction this year.
The 208 projects funding are broken down as follows:
- 5 kindergartens (kindergarten or pre-kindergarten renovations or additions)
- 46 major projects (new or replacement schools, major renovations or additions)
- 156 systemic renovations (replacement or upgrading of a system, such as a roof or HVAC)
- 1 relocatable facility (includes projects to relocate State-owned relocatable classrooms or repairs to and demolition of State-owned Relocatable.)
