Bond Dollars At Work

In 2019, voters elected to pass a $22.5 million dollar bond for facility improvements and additions.  Bonds will be sold in phases to support the different phases of construction and enhancements.  Below you will find progress photos of the projects.  In some cases, where construction has not begun, architecture drawings of the completed project will be displayed.  We are excited to grow and enhance our facilities for our students and community.
