$45 Million Spent On School Building Renovations In Springfield This Summer
It is the first day of the new academic year in the second-largest public school district in Massachusetts. 25,000 students returned to classes today in Springfield.
Many found renovations had occurred at their schools during the summer.
The school department had $45 million in projects planned at several buildings including putting on some new roofs, installing new windows, and renovating auditoriums and gymnasiums.
Recently, as construction work was going on at one of the city’s middle schools, WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Springfield Superintendent of Schools Dan Warwick.
