More facilities woes at DCPS

It looks like DCPS will have to go hat in hand back to the District to receive even more funding for emergency facility repairs.

D.C. officials yesterday said they need an additional $120 million for heating, air conditioning, plumbing and electrical work to make the city's schools fit to hold classes.

About $80 million has been spent since February on a "blitz" of repairs at half of the city's 141 schools, and officials need the additional money for repairs to the other half, said Allen Y. Lew, executive director of the Office of Public Education Facilities Modernization.
