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, accessibility and science classroom improvements at up to 63 other schools.
This summer in 2015 an ambitious slate of twenty-seven schools will receive facility improvements as part of the Bond. During the summer of 2014 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.
