Buffalo Public Schools Reconstruction Program

Buffalo, New York

The City of Buffalo and Buffalo Board of Education have created the Joint Schools Construction Board (JSCB), a new municipal entity charged with planning, financing, and implementing a ten-year comprehensive redevelopment of the physical plant of the Buffalo Public Schools. A primary goal is to build new schools and reconstruct existing schools to create learning environments that are at the forefront of educational design and that deliver the flexible spaces, instructional technology and social support necessary to enhance student achievement, equal to or exceeding the New York State Regents standards. Programs will be developed and promoted with central project themes including schools as learner-centered environments, centers of communities and as catalysts for neighborhood revitalization.
