This proposal can be summed up in three broad categories: ensuring health and safety, improving learning environments and updating infrastructure.

Unlike the 2016 capital project, there are no building additions in this proposal. The items are smaller items, like new fire alarm systems, that will “complete” the previous project by ensuring that OESJ schools are ready for the challenges of tomorrow, from top to bottom.
