District officials created the plan in 2018 to address aging facilities, many of which are more than 50 years old. The CIP for fiscal year 2022 includes $78 million in capital improvements and districtwide initiatives and the introduction of a prioritized list of all school buildings by October 2022.

Staff members are proposing reconfigurations to Irving and Timility middle schools and construction of five new building projects:
  • Dorchester – Pre-K-6, which is in site and school selection.
  • Roxbury – Pre-K-6, which is in site and school selection.
  • East Boston expansion, which is currently in design.
  • Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, which is in state review.
  • Allston-Brighton – Pre-K-6, which is in state review.
The district plans major renovations to BCLA-McCormack and Edwards, Irving, and Timilty buildings to establish two preferred school grade configurations to K-6/7-12 and K-8/9-12.
