School board's facilities panel OKs 4 projects

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Plans for a new K-12 arts campus, a new K-12 school in the East End, and two public-private partnerships to renovate two existing Cincinnati schools were approved by the school board's facilities committee Thursday.

        The four projects were pack aged into one resolution that was sent to the full board for approval at a Monday meeting.

        Board members Harriet Russell and Florence Newell supported all four measures. Member Sally Warner supported only the arts campus proposal. She said the board was moving too fast on projects that have not yet been fully discussed.

        The other projects are:

        Begin the process of property acquisition for a new K-12 school at the Rakestraw site in the East End.

        Develop a public-private partnership with Hughes Center alumni that would enable a renovation of Hughes using federal construction bonds.

        Develop a public-private partnership for renovations and additions to the Rockdale School that would result in a community learning center.
