Denver (AP) Eleven rural school districts are getting money from the state to fix or build new schools under a bill that passed last year.

State Treasurer Cary Kennedy announced the winners Wednesday. She said it's the state's largest investment in school construction in its history.

The projects will cost a combined $98 million. The state is paying 75 percent and local communities are paying 25 percent.

The projects includes six new schools, including four in the San Luis Valley. Other districts that will get some of the money are in El Paso, Logan, Morgan, Prowers, Pueblo and Routt Counties.
