Buildings in every district in the state get a failing grade in Rhode Island's first-ever statewide, independent study of public school facilities. The R.I. Department of Education's 2017 State of Rhode Island Schoolhouses report forecasts $627.5 million in high-priority construction and repairs needed to keep students and teachers warm, safe, and dry in their classrooms. The statewide cost to bring all school buildings into ideal condition is estimated at $2.2 billion.
