Commissioner’s Weekly Field Memo to Educators
21st Century Learning Spaces
At RIDE, we firmly believe that every student should learn in a modern, safe, and welcoming space that inspires them to succeed. With the $250 million school construction bond from 2018 we were able to address many school facility needs across RI.
But we know more work is needed – and that is why we advocated for an additional $300 million for statewide school construction included in the FY2023 state budget.
We’re excited to continue our momentum and offer every student a 21st Century learning environment that is conducive to learning.
Once it is completely rebuilt, the school will offer brand new shared community spaces such as a gymnasium, auditorium, media center, and cafeteria, and include key educational spaces for Pre-K and K, STEAM, and special educational programs!
