Construction starts in district’s $57.8 million capital project

June 24, 2016

Construction on the district’s $57.8 million capital project will start the last week of June, and continue through 2020.

The project, which voters approved in December 2015, includes several modern updates for students: an eight-classroom science addition at the high school, as well as six classrooms at Ballard Elementary School to accommodate the growing student population.

Also included in the project are expanded library media centers at Ballard and Tanglewood and upgrades to the high school auditorium. The project will also address building maintenance needs such as roofing, windows, doors and flooring across all six school buildings. A combined transportation and operations/maintenance facility will be constructed on the site of the lower bus garage on Harrison Avenue.

At the district Monday, June 20, board of education meeting, representatives from the project architect presented schematics of the buildings. Click here to see the presentation.

Site work at the high school will begin June 2016, in just the rear parking lot, and will be completed before school starts in the fall.

The other preliminary building work timelines are as follows:
