State funding to renovate schools

Posted By Astha Agarwal On October 28, 2010 @ 7:01 am In Denebologues,News | Comments Disabled

Bowen and Williams Elementary Schools are eligible to receive funding from the state for a new roof and two new boilers, respectively.
“Every year the mayor has given the city $1.75 million toward capital improvement project money in schools, but this year “we [may receive] some extra money from the state, Newton School Committee Chairperson Claire Sokoloff said. “We could apply for the grant money for these two projects since they’ve already been renovated.
When the School Committee agreed upon the repairs last year, the Massachusetts School Building Authority was providing grants for elementary school projects that would have positive environmental effects on the school. At the time, Bowen and Williams were the only two elementary schools in Newton needing repairs, and had already been renovated a few years ago. The School Committee submitted an application for the grant, but has not received a reply as of yet.
The repairs, however, are already on the committee’s schedule for the year, and will be completed regardless of whether the state provides funding. While the grant will not affect the completion of the projects, it may be able to move it to an earlier date.
