School Construction Projects Worth $229M Up For Bid
New school construction projects will be up for bid in 19 New Mexico school districts within the next two years thanks in part to a record $229 million in state funding that will be allocated for improvements to school buildings and the construction of new buildings.
The largest amount of state money awarded was $25.7 million to the Albuquerque Public Schools for a new high school. Rio Rancho will receive $46.8 million, and seven schools in Las Cruces are slated to receive money for improvements, including $2.7 million for a new high school.
Officials at the state Public School Facilities Authority said districts intending to make use of the projects must start construction within 24 months.
