Task force to review school buildings, construction, renovation plans in Md.


A 21-member task force will review Maryland's school construction program, Gov. Parris N. Glendening said yesterday.

The task force was required by the Thornton Commission legislation approved by the General Assembly this year. The legislation, which increases state aid to local school systems, also called for a review of Maryland school buildings to ensure enough space for such programs as full-day kindergarten.

The task force also is to examine the equity of state aid for classroom construction and renovations.

The 21 members include local and state officials, school board members and educators. Glendening picked state Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp to serve as chairwoman.

A report is due to the governor and Assembly by Dec. 31.
