BIRMINGHAM — Jefferson County Board of Education is proud to announce that Federal Judge Madeline Haikala has approved a request from the Jefferson County Board of Education for a $230 million dollar building
The proposal sent to Judge Haikala included a request for a capital outlay plan which will span over the next three years. The projects will alleviate the use of over 75 portable trailers and schools built before 1970, which are currently affecting over 10,000 students.
These improvements will ensure advanced infrastructure and safety additions that are not currently present. A total of seven new schools and nine major renovations are included. This capital campaign was made possible through community support after the March 7th property tax renewal was approved with an overwhelming 92% vote.
