NOTE: The SDA, in cooperation with the Department of Education, conducted a review of all projects previously in the 2008 Capital Plan that were not yet in construction. These projects were closely evaluated using criteria such as educational need, cost efficiency and potential for design standardization. The 2011 Capital Program was reviewed and approved by the SDA Board of Directors on March 2, 2011. The SDA will continue to have ongoing conversations with the districts so that their projects may be able to advance in subsequent years.
It is anticipated that this facility may be substituted for a new North Main Elementary School. The original North Main School, designed as a bunker, is a poor educational facility in need of replacement. Since the new North Main ES will be smaller than the originally proposed Decatur Avenue Alternative HS, this project is attainable with prior approved budget dollars.
