The original construction dates for our buildings range from 1908 to present. The infrastructure of many of these buildings is a challenge to provide maintenance and repair at a reasonable cost.
With the implementation of the two Magnet Schools; Winthrop and Nathan Hale; this office is intimately involved in the planning and roll out of this $66,000,000 endeavor.
