Proposition S, the $2.1 billion facilities bond to help fix and refurbish San Diego Unified schools, is already underway. More than $147 million in construction work will be awarded this year, according to a report that was presented today to the school board.
That first batch of projects includes $36 million in classroom technology and numerous facilities designed to link careers to the classroom, such as a $5.1 million automotive facility at Morse High and a $2.9 million facility for “green construction” at Hoover High.
The oversight committee for Proposition S is also meeting for the first time this Wednesday. It will review the basics about the facilities bond, its role, and the status of the controversial project labor agreement that San Diego Unified is negotiating with unions, according to a posted agenda.
