Latest Updates

Planned bond improvements at Federal Heights Elementary are currently in the design phase. A Design Advisory Group (DAG) has been formed to help the design team define the preliminary scope of potential renovation and remodel work. As part of this process, DAG members will establish a list of priorities for the expenditure of money from the school's specials bond budget. This does not include money already designated for identified critical deferred maintenance needs and safety and security upgrades. This construction work is anticipated to start in Summer 2018. Bennett Wagner Grody Architects | CannonDesign was selected as the architect for this project in Fall 2017.
