Dayton schools begin long-debated $30M in facilities projects

Dayton Daily News |

Dayton Public Schools is beginning $30 million in planned facility renovations and upgrades, with $10 million of that work scheduled for the 2020-21 school year.

The district has already begun $1.38 million in LED lighting upgrades in 10 school buildings. The biggest project for this year will be a $6.41 million upgrade of building automation systems in nine schools plus three transportation, service and storage buildings.

Dayton school board members argued repeatedly last year about the facilities spending plan, because there was no formal project list, because some opposed borrowing the $30 million, and because there were conflicting reports on how the money would be spent.

Details of the projects available in the full article.
