Big Island charter school to get $2.9M loan for more classroom space

The Innovations Public Charter School in Kailua-Kona will use some of the money to build a soccer field and a covered basketball court, in addition to refinancing existing debt. 

U.S. Sens. Daniel Inouye and Daniel Akaka and U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono announced Wednesday the money will come from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Facility Direct Loan program.
