School board gets $2.5 million from state

January 10, 1992|By Baltimore County Bureau of The Sun

The Baltimore County school board has received $2.5 million in state funds for its fiscal 1993 capital budget, school planner James Kraft told the board last night.

The board had already approved a $19.3 million capital budget that administrators said is needed to build two elementary schools, reopen an elementary and a middle school and improve four other schools.

Already available is $18.8 million left over from 1990's $39.9 million bond issue.

The $2.5 million in state money was allocated to build the school planned for Jacksonville, scheduled for a September 1994 opening.

It previously was to be built with county funds, Mr. Kraft said.

The state money has allowed school administrators to shift funds to speed an addition to Hillcrest Elementary School, he said.

The county executive will submit the budget to the County Council in April.
