The Ohio School Facil­i­ties Com­mis­sion on Thurs­day approved over $18.8 mil­lion in state fund­ing for school con­struc­tion work in the Bryan City School Dis­trict.

The dis­trict is one of 19 from across the state that received an offer of fund­ing from the Com­mis­sion, which over­sees the state’s school facil­ity ren­o­va­tion and con­struc­tion pro­gram.

The fund­ing, com­bined with $35 mil­lion from the dis­trict, will allow the dis­trict to move for­ward with the ren­o­va­tion of the cur­rent Bryan Mid­dle School for chil­dren in Pre-Kindergarten through grade 5 and the con­struc­tion of a new mid­dle — high school com­bi­na­tion build­ing for grades 6 through 12.

The Board of Edu­ca­tion will place a bond issue on the Novem­ber, 2013 bal­lot, the first oppor­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to approve the local share.

School dis­tricts must raise their local share of the project bud­get within 13 months before the state fund­ing can be released.
