A conceptual image of a modernized reading and writing area slated for Agnor-Hurt Elementary School

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.
