Today the Evening Times can name the 59 nursery, primary and ASL schools across the city that will be the first to benefit from improvements.
Year one of the five-year scheme will see 59 establishments around Glasgow receive investment.
Councillor Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council, said he was delighted to announce the first group of schools to benefit from this major investment.
He said: "This is great news for the citizens of Glasgow.
"Our sole aim is to educate our children in buildings fit for purpose and I'm delighted to announce the first 59 schools and nurseries on year one of our five-year £250 million investment.
"This will not only benefit children across Glasgow, this major capital investment will also provide a significant boost to the local economy."
The Evening Times first told in December last year how hundreds of millions of pounds were to be earmarked for school upgrades.
The year one work plan is aimed at investments that will have an immediate impact on the estate and the quality of learning and teaching areas.
More than £40million of refurbishment will be carried out in the first year.
The works will include the upgrading of roofs, exterior walls and decoration, playground and paths, fences and walls, drainage, dry rot, asbestos control and the removal of pigeon droppings.
Detailed surveys are being carried out across the estate and schools requiring major refurbishments and the details of the work plans for years two to five will be announced in the autumn.
This will allow officers time to programme detailed arrangements for decants and work plans to minimise the disruption to learning while the work is being carried out.
Headteachers will be told this week of the breakdown of planned work and timescales.
Mr Matheson added: "Education and jobs are both top priorities of this council and we will deliver on them.
"This administration has pledged to rebuild or refurbish every primary in the city, as well as every remaining early years and additional support for learning (ASL) school.
"The announcement today is only the beginning.
"This council has a strong track record of providing schools fit for purpose and has spent £550 million on school buildings in the last 12 years."
