The Baltimore County (Md.) school district has received an additional $80 million in state grants for ongoing school construction projects,
WBAL-TV reports that Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski's office says the money will be distributed as follows:
- $26 million toward a new Lansdowne High School
- $20 million toward a like-new Towson High School
- $15 million toward a new Deer Park Elementary School
- $10 million toward a new Scott's Branch Elementary School
- $8 million toward a new addition at Dundalk High School
- $1 million toward a new addition at new Pine Grove Middle School
Olszewski says the extra state funding also will help expedite other projects in the future, including a new Dulaney High School, solutions for high school crowding in the Northeast and Southeast clusters, and plans for a new CTE Center in northwest Baltimore County.
The upcoming school rebuilds and renovations are part of Olszewski's $3.3 billion plan to improve every school in Baltimore County over 15 years.
