School is never out of session in Fulton County. When students and staff move out for summer vacation, construction and maintenance crews move in to perform the thousands of projects needed to get ready for the next academic year.
Those 10 weeks of summer allow workers to repair worn and damaged floors, paint walls, replace HVACs, pave parking lots, and tackle items that are difficult to finish when thousands of students are inside a school. During this time, schools receive interior and exterior facelifts, health and safety upgrades, security enhancements, and physical education improvements.
Summer 2019 was the biggest renovation program in Fulton County Schools history, with projects estimated to be around $90 million – an expenditure of about a million dollars a day. Thanks to SPLOST, 40 schools were touched in some way during the summer renovation program.
