State questions funding of Agriscience school project

The state Department of Administrative Services is asking a legislative committee to remove the Region 12 School District proposed Agriscience STEM Academy project from the Priority List, to allow more time to explore the possibility of regional alternatives.  Commissioner Melody Currey said in a letter to the School Construction Committee that the projected enrollment numbers cannot be validated.  The General Assembly will decide in the coming months about funding 80-percent of the project as various committees vote on a school construction bill.  The Region 12 Board of Education was slated to vote this week on approving more funding to make the project shovel ready, but the meeting was cancelled due to weather conditions.
