R.I. begins rebuilding schools after voters approve $250 million repair bond

November 8, 2018

It looks like Gov. Gina Raimondo’s vision of saving local schools will finally come to fruition.

Rhode Islanders approved a $250 million school repair bond which would not only renovate existing school buildings, but also fund the construction of new ones.

“This is a big first step in what will be a multi-year process to get these buildings back into good shape,” General Treasurer Seth Magaziner, who led a task force aimed at rebuilding schools across the state, said.
