The state Schools Development Authority this year will put over $675 million into major construction and repair projects at 20 public schools in 18 of New Jersey’s poorest districts, Gov. Chris Christie announced Wednesday.

They are divided into three categories addressing: high educational priority needs, high educational priority needs that require further discussions with the district and serious facility deficiencies.

Projects addressing high educational priority needs are:

Gloucester City – Gloucester City Middle School

Keansburg – Caruso Elementary School

New Brunswick – Paul Robeon Community Elementary School

Newark – Elliot Street Elementary School

Newark – South Street Elementary School

Passaic – Dayton Avenue Elementary School Campus

Phillipsburg – Phillipsburg High School

West New York – Memorial High School

Projects addressing high educational priority needs that require further discussions with the district:

Elizabeth – Elementary School

Garfield – Elementary School

Harrison – Middle School

Millville – High School

Paterson – Elementary School

Perth Amboy – All grade levels

Union City – Elementary School

Projects that address serious facility deficiencies:

Camden - Camden High School

Hoboken – Thomas G. Connors Elementary School

Orange – Cleveland Elementary School

Orange – Orange High School

Trenton – Trenton Central High School

“For years, the SDA (Schools Development Authority) was allowed to operate without any accountability or supervision, resulting in a disastrous legacy that featured wasteful spending and cost overruns, a bloated bureaucracy and empty promises on the number of schools to be built and completed,” Christie said as he announced the 2012 projects, such as West New York Memorial High School.
