PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island General Assembly passed a bill allowing Pawtucket to vote on funding for a new high school this fall.

Voters will be able to decide whether or not to approve a $330 million bond that would go towards building a new campus for the city’s high school.

“With the passage of this legislation, we’re one step closer to starting construction on the brand new, state-of-the-art Pawtucket High School campus that our students deserve,” said Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien.

The new campus would be able to hold 2,500 students and would be built where McCoy Stadium is now.

The bond would also cover other Pawtucket school facility improvements.
