Designing a Viable Education Framework
Detroit Public Schools Community District
In May 2022, the DPSCD school board approved a plan totaling $700 million, which is possible through COVID relief funding granted to the district. Investments include $281 million to rebuild five schools, $296 million to renovate buildings, and $128 million to reopen previously closed school buildings, expand pre-K, build additions onto existing schools, and demolish or sell some vacant buildings.
We are also creating a roadmap with detailed funding mechanisms to help the district achieve its full comprehensive facilities master plan. In addition to our firm, the planning team consists of Hamilton Anderson, serving as local community liaison and design partner; Wightman, providing facility assessments and demographics studies; and Barton Malow, providing cost estimating.
