Summer 2018 Bond Projects

Updated on Fri, 06/01/2018 - 8:51am

As students and teachers head out for summer break, construction crews will move in at nearly a dozen district schools and facilities receiving significant renovation work as part of the 2016 Bond Program.

Summer 2018 will mark the first summer of district-wide bond work as part of $350 million in planned bond improvements approved by district voters in 2016. Many of the projects scheduled to take place  this summer have been planned for much of the past year and, in most cases, address critical building repair needs identified as part of the original bond plan.

The following is a list of bond work continuing or planned to start in Summer 2018. Click on any of the school names to learn more about the specific bond projects.
