-A A +A

Los Alamos Public School District has qualified for more than $7.6 million in state funds from the Public School Capital Outlay Council for design and construction projects at the high school.

The district will receive $495,000 in state funds for planning and design to renovate the high school, the Public School Facilities Authority announced last week.

Rep. Jeannette Wallace, R-Los Alamos, Sandoval, Santa Fe, said the district met the standards of a priority-based funding formula to qualify for the award.

The award was part of $131 million awarded to 24 projects in 15 school districts by the council. The state finances these projects by issuing bonds on severance tax revenue from oil and gas extraction.

The lion’s share of the funds, $7,126,840 are for educational specifications, planning and design to replace the school’s B, C and D wings, along with renovations and improvements for the media center and gymnasium.

In an interview Monday, John Wolfe, LAPS business manager, said this share of funds would require another step.
