Do you support the School Board's classroom modernization project?
Tuesday, September 02, 2014 at 10:52 a.m.

The Albemarle County School Board has endorsed a facilities budget that, if fully funded, would see about $104 million disbursed over the next five years. The bulk of the proposed plan comes in the form of a 10-year, nearly $70 million learning spaces modernization project that would update classrooms in all of the division’s 25 school buildings.

Schools staff has championed the initiative, arguing that while the division’s buildings have been well maintained, little has been done to address classroom design elements, such as furniture, access to natural light and the physical shape of classrooms.

By modernizing classroom learning spaces, student behavior and performance will improve.

NO

I'm not convinced spending that amount of money will significantly affect student performances.
