CPS refines building plans

        Cincinnati Public Schools officials restated the facts and figures of the planned $1 billion, 10-year school construction project.

        The new figures indicate the school system anticipates fewer new buildings than the district originally said Wednesday (Jan. 10 story).

        There will be 34 buildings recommended for new construction. The district would have 66buildings by 2012, for a total of 14 fewer buildings than in 2001.

        Ten new schools will be built on new sites. The district is still determining how many existing schools it will close for good.

        The district's plan is not final. It requires a multi-million-dollar bond issue. If the board of education approves the plan by June, the district already has enough money to begin the project, officials said.
