Salem projects receive $17M boost

School upgrades, new liquor store in state capital budget


The CTE project does not call for any big increases in space or staff, Delahanty said.

When the Plymouth school district wasn’t prepared to upgrade its center, the Salem project was moved up a year on the state’s list, he said.

The state Department of Education has committed to renovating two of its 23 CTE centers each year, despite major cuts in funding for state programs, Delahanty said. Pinkerton Academy in Derry received $7.8 million from the state to upgrade its own center.

But there was uncertainty this year, so Salem was fortunate to get the money while it was available, he said.

“We don’t know what’s going to happen with the state budget a year or two from now,” Delahanty said. “There was an idea this go-around to eliminate funding for one center, which would have knocked us out of the queue.”
