BALTIMORE — An additional $60 million has reportedly been made available for new Baltimore City school construction through the Maryland Stadium Authority and the 21st Century School Buildings Program.

The program aims to build 28 buildings that will become home to 32 schools.

So far the program has turned out 15 new schools, which came in five percent under budget.

Construction is already underway for nine more schools, three others are in the designing stages, and one is completing the feasibility study phase.

It's estimated that the program provides 957 jobs for city residents, with over $346 million in contracts awarded to minority and women owned businesses.
