State Representative Jonathan Dever (R-Madeira) applauds the approval of a project to assist in replacing the buildings in the Reading Community School District. The Ohio School Facilities Commission approved the funding through the Exceptional Needs Program during its monthly meeting this afternoon.


The entire project will consist of building a new school building that will house students from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Combining state and local shares, the total budget will be nearly $51 million.


“This is great news for Reading,” Dever said. “I look forward to watching this project move forward and seeing the positive impact the new facility will have on the students and the greater Reading community.”


Reading Community Schools is one of nine districts statewide to have projects approved during today’s meeting, totaling $496 million in state and local funds. The school is located within the 28th Ohio House District, which Dever represents.
