The Baltimore County, Md., Council has allocated $70 million to the county school district for facility improvements.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the district will spend $19 million to begin designs for campuses that will replace Towson and Dulaney high schools.
Other planned projects: $15,200,000 to replace Red House Run Elementary; $13,500,000 for a Dundalk High School addition; $5,810,000 for a Pine Grove Middle School addition; and $10 million for designs that will alleviate high school crowding in the Northeast and Southeast areas of the county.
This list of projects will join other capital improvements under way in the Baltimore County district, including a new Lansdowne High School and a new Deer Park Elementary School.
Investments at Deer Park will make the school the district's first net-zero facility, which means the building will create as much energy as it uses.
