Two schools to receive funding for campus improvements


Construction at two Big Island schools will soon get underway.

Haaheo Elementary School and Kalanianaole Elementary and Intermediate School have both received funding from the Department of Education to improve its campuses.

The projects include road upgrades at Haaheo Elementary and a new roof for one of Kalanianaole Elementary and Intermediate’s buildings.

“I am pleased that the governor has released the funding for these much needed Capital Improvement Projects at Haaheo Elementary and Kalanianaole Elementary and Intermediate,” said Sen. Malama Solomon, who represents District 1 (Waimea, Hamakua, North Hilo, Rural South Hilo, and Hilo).

“Our schools’ facilities play a pivotal role in the educational environment of our children. By investing in our schools’ infrastructure, we provide a safer and more conducive learning environment where our children can learn and play,” Solomon said.

The projects will cost nearly $467,000.

These projects will also stimulate our economy and create jobs our residents so urgently need,” Solomon said.

The start dates of the construction work have yet to be determined.
