Two more Richmond schools will soon get seismic upgrades.

Maple Lane and James McKinney elementary schools are receiving a combined $19.3 million from the provincial government for these improvements.

Education Minister Rob Fleming announced the planned funding outside Mitchell Elementary this morning, where seismic upgrades are ready to begin.

Thanks to these upgrades, more Richmond students will be learning in safe schools.

“On behalf of the parents, we are extremely grateful that the government is taking this issue very seriously,” said Richmond District Parents Association president Dionne McFie.

Construction is expected to be underway at both McKinney and Maple Lane by fall 2020.
