At the Dec. 15 Enterprise City Schools Board Meeting it was revealed that ECS will be receiving more than $8 million in funding from the state for capitol projects.
In November, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey announced that public schools, colleges and universities around the state would be receiving more than $298 million for funding of capital projects through Public School and College Authority (PSCA) bonds.
This is money that schools will receive to fund their various capital projects and does not have to be repaid. The share that ECS will receive is $8,612,443.00.
The board approved an agreement between ECS and TCU Construction to oversee the school’s capital projects over the next three years. ECS will pay TCU Construction $361,000 for its services and all of it will be paid using funding from the PSCA bonds.
Also during the meeting, the board approved the purchases of English language learning software and computer software for school buses.
