More than half of the funding proposed in School Bond 2014, fifty five percent, would be used to be pay for improvements to existing Northside schools. More than half of Northside’s schools are more than 20 years old and some were built as early as the 1950s and 1960s. These aging schools need continued attention to keep them up to current standards and provide functional learning spaces for children.
Classroom additions and renovations/reconstruction projects account for $182.97 million of the School Bond 2014 proposal.
