Office of Construction
Dayton Public Schools is in the third and final segment of its $627-million school construction program, in partnership with the Ohio School Facilities Commission. Last year, we opened seven new schools with state-of-the-art technology for our teachers and students. Fifteen schools 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 has been made possible, while 61 percent of the cost is 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.)
The beginning of the 2011-2012 school year saw the successful opening of River's Edge Montessori and Fairview PreK-8 schools and Belmont High School (serving grad. In January 2012, the district is preparing to open its 26th and final school: Wright Brothers PreK-8 School. When the project is complete, Dayton Public Schools will have state-of-the-art schools with safe, technology-rich environments where Dayton’s children will prepare for success in the 21st century.
