Posted September 14, 2009

The Detroit Public Schools on Tuesday unveiled a $500.5 million capital improvement program to rebuild or completely renovate 18 schools as part of the district's mission to create Centers of Excellence in every school in every neighborhood. The project, to be completed in 36 months, would take advantage of historic stimulus bond financing under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the legislation passed by Congress and signed by President Obama. The federal stimulus program makes this project possible with no tax increase.
