Office of Construction
With the grand opening of Wright Brothers PreK-8 School in January 2012, Dayton Public Schools has completed its $627-million school construction program, in partnership with the Ohio School Facilities Commission. In total, 26 new school buildings have been built and occupied, bringing unprecedented district renewal and community revival. Thanks to citizen support of a 2002 bond issue, our local share of 39 percent was made possible, while 61 percent of the cost was provided by the state through the Ohio School Facilities Commission. (The bond issue provides funds for new and renovated facilities and cannot, by law, be used for textbooks, salaries or other general fund expenditures.)
With these new buildings, Dayton Public Schools students have state-of-the-art schools with safe, technology-rich environments, preparing them for success in the 21st century.
