  • Alignment with the goals and principles of the district’s Long Range Facilities Plan
  • Alignment with the goals of the Business Equity Policy
  • Lowering maintenance and construction costs while improving operating efficiency
  • Historic preservation and school renovation
  • Potential capital partnerships for joint and shared use of PPS facilities
  • Implementation of appropriate ways to address seismic issues
  • Compliance with ADA requirements

The committee communicates key information related to the bond to the School Board, public groups, organizations and stakeholders.
