The Department of Education previously approved about $6.5 million for improvements to the New Albany Elementary School, Rush Intermediate School, the middle school and the high school.
However, the Board of Education requested additional money because it felt the state was underestimating how much money it could contribute, according to the report. Upon reevaluation, the State is providing between $10 and $11.5 million, according to the report.
Cinnaminson had submitted applications for projects at all four schools, totaling approximately $39 million, but the total project cost returned by the state was just less than $16.3 million.
The applications were approved in December.
Needed improvements at the schools include: upgrading the HVAC system at the high school; a new roof, windows and doors at the high school; handicap accessibility to the second floor of the high school; and improved security at the entrances to all four schools.
Last week, the Department of Education announced the Cinnaminson School District would receive an additional $47,000 in state aid, bringing the total state aid for 2015 to $8,995,720.
