Washington D.C. repair blitz begins at three elementary schools

Feb. 27, 2007
$75 million repair program will immediately fix "quality of life" issues.

Three elementary schools in Washington, D.C., will receive immediate attention for such problems as leaky roofs, broken heating and ventilation systems and poor lighting. The $2.2 million Blitz Repair Program will cover fixes at King, Green and Hendley elementary schools. They are the first schools chosen for a $75 million repair program to immediately fix what school officials call "quality of life" issues, including restrooms, water fountains, security doors and window replacements. The money will be used to start repairs on three to four schools a month. The entire program, covering more than 100 schools, will take two years to complete.
