Improving school buildings, enhancing school achievement
It all began with a plan! A bold plan that would allow the district to address its aging school buildings (among the oldest in the state), create safe and secure spaces for students and staff, remove most of the district’s portable classrooms, decrease excess seat capacity, and remove over $1 billion in deferred facility maintenance over the next 15 years. This plan is known as The Master Facility Plan. Thanks to overwhelming voter approval of the half-penny tax, the plan is now in implementation, paving the way for the greatest renovation and rebuilding program in the history of public education in Duval County.No Headlines to display
