HAZEL CREST, Ill. (CBS) — More than 30 Illinois school districts will split $623 million in state construction funding to repair and update aging facilities, under a program announced Thursday.

Gov. Pat Quinn’s office said the program will provide construction funds to 31 school districts statewide.

“In order for our students to compete for the jobs of tomorrow, we must ensure they are receiving a quality education in quality school facilities,” Quinn said in a news release. “This capital funding will help school districts across the state update their facilities and make critical repairs to improve the educational experience for our students,”

The districts had submitted proposed projects to the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Capital Development Board, which signed off on their plans and the funding for the projects.
