In addition to a series of facility upgrades, Cabinet is being asked to approve the removal of buildings beyond economic repair and surplus to requirement.
But member for education Mike Day said the funds would only go a short way to address the £146 million maintenance backlog built up at schools in the council area.
Cabinet is also being asked to approve the earmarking of future cash to further develop schemes next year.
Mr Day said: "As a local authority we are striving to make the best use of this money to address the maintenance backlog in our schools.
"If approved by Cabinet, the funding from WAG is very welcome and will help us make the most of the available resources."
He said the grant money would be targeted at schools "in greatest need".
