The COVID-19 pandemic has presented numerous issues and challenges to Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
However, one issue that has remained unaffected has been it’s renovations and construction at Coral Gables Senior High School.
By next month, the current phase of the project will be completed including the construction of the new building. This will be followed with the completion of the new courtyard in the Spring.
In a presentation made to the City’s School Community Relations Committee, Chief Facilities Officer Victor Alonso, explained that the next phase will be the renovations of the main campus building.
Through this process, the budget for the renovation have continued to grow, thanks in large part to the work of School Board Member Mari Tere Rojas. In December, it was announced, she had been able to secure an additional $11 million for the renovations of the school’s gym.
The additional funding will bring the total project costs to $43 million. The completion of the full project is expected to be sometime in 2024.
