There is a ceremony today re-opening Kensington High School as Frederick Law Olmsted at Kensington, the latest project in the $1.5 billion rebuilding of city schools.The Joint Schools Construction Board yesterday approved paying more than $6 million in the latest monthly installment of the building project.
Chief Operating Officer Joseph Giusiana told the board those monthly payments will rise sharply as the $175 million Phase 5 of the program kicks into action.
That includes major projects like Grover Cleveland High School, School 53 and Drew Science Magnet School 59.
The $293 million Phase 4 part of the project is almost finished.
Giusiana says the district is also spending around $5 million a year on maintenance of the rehabbed buildings, covering parts of the buildings which weren't re-done.
