Five things to know about the Greenwich school’s capital budget as it pursues a $130 million request

The Board of Education took a first look at a draft of the $130 million capital budget request for the next fiscal year for the Greenwich Public Schools during a meeting last week. It covers multiple large capital projects in the school district, including the new Central Middle School building, renovations at Old Greenwich and Julian Curtiss schools and other building updates. The capital budget would be for the 2024 fiscal year, from July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024. The capital budget includes $5.211 million in Americans with Disabilities Act projects. Currently, every school has areas that are not accessible and not compliant with the ADA, according to the district’s ADA updates page online. The budget draft also includes $1.5 million for the Julian Curtiss expansion and renovation project during fiscal year 2024 and $29.7 million the following year. The district is requesting $69,187,000 in fiscal year 2024 to build a new Central Middle School building, but this amount may change.
