Rhode Island’s Council for Elementary and Secondary Education approved funding for school building projects in more than a dozen school districts. Most of the money comes from a multi-million school building authority proposed by Governor Gina Raimondo and passed by state lawmakers.
Projects that will receive funding include building upgrades in Providence and Pawtucket and hazardous materials abatement in the Bristol-Warren school district. A total of more than $19 million in school construction projects across the state are included in the proposal.
The money will fund 86 projects at schools at an estimated total cost of $24 million. The projects include fire safety upgrades, heating and ventilation modernization, roofing replacement, and removal of hazardous materials.
