Thanks to the community’s approval of a bond measure in 2018, schools all across the district are receiving expansions and/or improvements.
The district is finishing its third year of construction under the bond program. To date, 90% of architectural design work is complete, and 63% of planned construction is substantially complete, meaning the spaces are ready to be used for school operations. Fifty-four out of the district’s 60 school sites are either in architectural design, under construction, or substantially complete.
At Englewood Elementary, bond improvements were complete in the fall of 2020. Englewood received upgrades in the music room, improved visibility of the front entry from the office, upgrades to the intercom and electronic badge access system, the old portable classroom was replaced, and more.
All schools in the district will receive some level of improvement under the bond. The following table gives a short summary of the status of work at schools in the North Salem High School feeder system.
Many schools across Salem and Keizer in the district’s five other high school feeder systems are also in various phases of construction or are complete.
Thank you, voters, for providing relief for overcrowding, increased safety and security, expanded career and technical (vocational) education opportunities, and more for our students.
