Metro Council To Vote On $90M For Improvements In Schools

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Metro Council will vote Tuesday night whether or not to approve $90-million in additional capital improvement plans for Metro-Nashville Public Schools.

The plan calls for improvements at 180 schools. On Monday, officials gave a tour of Antioch Middle School, where part of that money is already being spent.

Parts of the school had to be shut down this past year, because the mold problems were so bad.

After a $10-million dollar renovation, school officials hope the improvements will freshen up more than just the classrooms.

"Just the aesthetic lift will give parents a lot more confidence in what we're able to provide them in terms of education," said Principal Dr. Canidra Henderson.

"It's really a great example of how a school can change and change a neighborhood really when we capital funding to support the school," said Joe Bass with Metro-Nashville Public Schools.
