Latest Updates

Woodglen Elementary will receive significant renovations and improvements in Summer 2018 as part of the 2016 Bond Program.

These planned improvements are part of building system, infrastructure and safety upgrades identified during the bond development process as well as a Design Advisory Group (DAG), of school staff, parents and community members who worked with the architectural team in Spring 2017 to prioritize a scope of renovation and remodel work. As part of this process, DAG members identified a list of primary and secondary priorities for the expenditure of money from the school's renovations and specials bond budget. This did not include money already designated for identified critical deferred maintenance needs and safety and security upgrades.
