Visitors tour upgraded spaces

Nearly 400 visitors toured schools last month during the District’s construction completion celebration. Every school site opened its doors to the public for student-led tours of the new spaces made possible by voters who approved the School Board’s construction bond in 2017. All of the projects were completed on time and on budget. Watch a brief video featuring highlights from all sites.
