School Building Improvement Bond
Work is well underway on the voter approved eight-year, School Building Improvement Bond. The bond will rebuild three high schools and replace one grade school. It will also fix leaking and deteriorating roofs, and make seismic safety, access and science classroom upgrades at up to 63 other schools.
During the summer of 2014 a new group of twelve schools had improvement projects completed on time and on budget. In 2013 work at six schools were also completed on time and on budget. These projects employ hundreds of workers from local companies. To see a video on the summer 2014 work click here.
With master planning & schematic design complete, construction on the historic Franklin and Roosevelt high schools is less than a year away. The Faubion PK-8 replacement project has completed master planning and is now in the schematic design phase.
