Looking at Wake County's plans for starting the new school construction program

Now that the $810 million school construction bond issue has been approved, the Wake County school system has plans on getting the new construction program moving forward.

Joe Desormeaux, the assistant superintendent for facilities, said they’re going to use some of the $43.8 million in bonds the county sold earlier this year to get things going. That would tide the school district over until bond funding becomes available fall 2014 after the county commissioners approve a tax increase in the 2014-15 budget in June.

Right now, Desormeaux said five new schools – Scotts Ridge Elementary School in Apex, Abbotts Creek Elementary School in North Raleigh, the M8 middle school in northwest Raleigh, the H7 high school in Cary and the H8 high school in Garner – and the renovation of Green Elementary School in North Raleigh are all in design.
