Paterson plans renovation.

The city of Paterson plans to renovate a run-down, three-story brick school-house for use as an early child education program that would include seven classrooms, a library and computer lab. The renovation of Old School No. 2 on Passaic Street in the city's Great Falls Historic District is estimated to cost $3 million and would be financed through a state school loan program.

According to Ben Williams, state assistant superintendent for the Paterson School District, the city needs more pre-school programs like the one which would be provided through this renovation.

The school district is applying for more than $10 million from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority for the renovation of Old School No. 2 and other projects that include installation of exterior doors, improvement of emergency systems, replacement of window system and rehabilitation of auditoriums and classrooms.
