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 had their Bond work completed on time and on budget. 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.Construction continues on the Modernization of historic Franklin and Roosevelt high schools with a significant amount of work having been accomplished thus far. The Faubion PK-8 replacement project is in design development. Master planning on Grant is underway and the master planning on Benson, Lincoln and Madison will begin this fall and winter.
PPS is building futures and we need your help.
The first Master Planning Public Design Workshop for Grant is set for Saturday, Oct. 24th from 9:00-Noon in the GHS library.
