HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) — Schools in Miami-Dade County will be getting a touch-up.
Several groundbreaking events are scheduled to take place over the next two weeks after the passage of a $1.2 billion referendum to modernize and construct new school buildings.
The upgrades are designed to expand student capacity, enhance safety and provide new technology at all schools.
District officials say design plans are underway in preparation for construction. A new wireless infrastructure already has been installed at many of the schools.
The first groundbreaking event will take place Monday at South Hialeah Elementary School.
