Paving and accessibility improvements are underway at eight sites and fencing projects are taking place at several sites throughout the district.
Roofing projects are slated to take place at Bear Creek Elementary School, Mountain View High School, La Pine High School, Pilot Butte Middle School and Bend Senior High School this summer.
Roofing projects were completed at Buckingham Elementary School, Cascade Middle School and R.E. Jewell Elementary School.
The following projects are in design, planning or development — with construction slated to begin in 2020.
In May 2017, the voters of Bend-La Pine Schools approved a capital construction bond in the amount of $268 million dollars.
School bond projects will increase student and staff safety, improve access to school sites, and address chronic overcrowding through upgrades and updates made to schools and classrooms throughout the district.
Construct one elementary school and one high school to meet current and anticipated future overcrowding caused by decades of continuing enrollment growth.
Nearly half of the District’s schools are more than 30-years-old, and projects are proposed to modernize these facilities. The bond funding would allow the District to replace leaking roofs and windows, and upgrade heating, ventilation, electrical, and plumbing systems. The bond would also allow the District to make money saving energy improvements to boilers, HVAC and lighting systems to many of its schools and facilities.
Many of the District's classrooms were constructed decades ago. The bond would allow the community to add and renovate classrooms and support spaces at existing schools; including modernization of instructional spaces for science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics and physical education.
Make health and life safety upgrades including cameras,
intercoms and entrance redesign to provide improved visibility of visitor
access. Improve technology wiring and cabling to ensure students throughout the
district have equal access to technology resources.
