Jefferson County Board of Education will begin an ambitious $200 million capital outlay plan which will span over the next three years. The projects will alleviate the use of over 75 portable trailers and schools built before 1970 which are currently affecting over 10,000 students. These improvements will ensure advanced infrastructure and safety additions that are not currently present.

A total of seven new schools and nine major renovations are included. This capital campaign was made possible through community support after the March 7th property tax renewal was approved with an overwhelming 92% vote.

Our school board is still developing specific plans for the construction projects that are part of the capital outlay plan. Once those plans are more concrete, the Board will share them with the parties to the school system’s ongoing federal desegregation case in order to receive their feedback and will submit the final plan to the federal court for its approval before moving forward with any construction. In continuing our efforts to involve all stakeholders, we will be scheduling several community meetings to listen and collaborate on these projects and our district’s future.
