In its draft FY19-28 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), the School Board has pared back its 10-year funding request to City Council from last year by nearly a quarter — from $611 million to $475 million. This results from the School Board’s incorporating an advisory task force’s recommendations to delay and remove certain projects in order to align with identified available funding from the city coffers. However, despite the task force’s streamlining, the school system still faces a growing deficit of seats in light of increasing student enrollment.
