Greenwich officials make case for school funding as way to ‘invest in our community’

Currently, school infrastructure has been a “controversial topic” in Greenwich. The Superintendent of Schools Toni Jones recently gave a presentation about the Facilities Master Plan: an overview of the district buildings and a set list of priorities for improvement projects on a 15 year schedule. Jones also focused greatly on the Julian Curtiss School, one of the district’s top priorities for large scale renovations.The proposal would cost about $25 million, and has been “on the table” for three years, but is constantly running into issues regarding funding.  Board of Education Chair Peter Bernstein also notes that. “the district is proposing $12 million in maintenance funding in its 2021-22 budget. Stowe, who also chairs the school board’s Budget Committee, said that based on the asset value of the district’s 15 schools, maintenance spending should really be somewhere between $20 million and $50 million annually to keep up with aging infrastructure.”
