Millions allotted to Catholic school upgrades
Toronto’s aging Catholic schools are set to see $48.1 million in repairs over the next two years, the board announced this week.
On Wednesday, the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) announced it had approved a school renewal program that will see $48.1 million targeted at “high priority building needs requiring immediate attention” to “ensure a safe and healthy environment for students and staff.”
The renewal work to be completed, which is being funded by the Ministry of Education’s Pupil Accommodation Grant, ranges from complex building envelope, mechanical, electrical and energy-related improvements like boilers, to smaller jobs including painting and landscaping.
All projects are open for competitive bid by pre-qualified vendors. Interested contractors are invited to pre-qualify by completing the appropriate form (either for contractor services or for consultant services), which is available at www.tcdsb.org
