Russo seeks $16.5 million for school construction

January 31, 2002

Carmen V. Russo, chief executive officer of Baltimore public schools, asked the Maryland Board of Public Works yesterday for $16.5 million in state school construction money to build a new Lexington Terrace school and renovate Booker T. Washington Middle School.

The projects are aimed at keeping children longer in neighborhood schools. Both schools would include prekindergarten through eighth grade. The board will make a decision on the request in May.

The board awarded the city school system $9.7 million yesterday, most of it to start a citywide technology high school.
