- Fully funding facilities repair and maintenance. The state approved $278 million in capital investment in Providence schools in 2018-19, but that amount fell far short of the $532 million that a 2017 report by Jacobs and Cooperative Strategies estimated was needed for facilities investments in our schools.
- Providing transparent, consistent community engagement whenever schoolwide facility decisions are to be made.
- Investing in internet in school buildings and continued support of home devices and internet.
- Ensuring every school is safe for public health. From continued monitoring of ventilation to ensuring lead-free water fountains, our schools mustn’t harm the health of students, families and educators.
