Why not remodel instead of rebuild new schools?

Posted by:

Renovation of older buildings is expensive, provides fewer benefits, and often results in unforeseen costs. New, efficient buildings have a longer lifespan, reduce maintenance and operational costs, and improve health, safety and educational opportunities. Modern schools enhance safety and improve learning environments. 

In fact, Crescent Harbor Elementary School was recently named the top school in the nation on federal land in need of repair.  Hand-in-Hand/HomeConnection wasn’t much further behind on the list.
