The Office of Public School Construction’s (OPSC) Executive Officer Lisa Silverman joined local officials in a grand re-opening ceremony and ribbon cutting on September 3 for the Maple Hill Elementary School in Diamond Bar, California.
The eastern Los Angeles County elementary school will provide approximately 550 students a place to learn, while the construction of the school bolsters the local economy through the creation of jobs and the purchase of building materials.
The project received over $2.5 million in state funding from the State Allocation Board’s modernization program to modernize 21 classrooms, an administration building, and a library building.
The modernization program provides state funds on a 60/40 state and local sharing basis for eligible projects.
OPSC, on behalf of the Department of General Services and the State Allocation Board, implements and administers a $35 billion, voter-approved school facilities construction program.
