HALIFAX - Fifty schools across Nova Scotia are getting provincial funding for upgrades, repairs and improvements as part of an expanded capital repairs program.

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development said late last year that it would increase capital repairs funding by $9 million dollars for a total of $15 million for smaller projects.

Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Karen Casey said Thursday that school boards have been told which schools will get money for capital repairs.

Capital projects include roof repairs, window replacements, gym improvements, paving and creating community resource spaces.

Casey said capital repairs projects must have a budget between $150,000 and $1 million to be eligible.
