Chicago Schools to Ignite a New Construction Boom

Chicago, IL -- The Chicago Board of Education is looking to approve an $840 million in additional debt for school construction.  The board is also looking into refinancing $160 million in old debt.

This surge in construction spending will create a huge surge in Chicago's construction jobs.  The schools will be focusing on renovations, energy efficiency, and building more self-sustaining schools.

Chicago isn't the only school district that is taking on major construction plans.  Calirfornia is deciding on Proposition 51, which would allow $9 billion in bonds to finance new school construction and repair/replace older schools.  The $9 billion would be only one stage of a $22 billion school construction project over 10 years.

Baltimore is in the midst of building two multimillion dollar schools with a $1.1 billion school construction initiative.  By 2020, Baltimore will have 28 new or rehabbed school structures.
