March 11, 2021 Bond Update

This spring, many construction projects throughout the district are moving ahead, with many efforts complete or nearing completion as part of the 2017 bond. The bond included funding for two new schools: North Star Elementary School, which is complete; and Caldera High School, which will be open in fall of 2021. The bond also included funding for maintenance and preservation of decades-old schools, modernization efforts, safety and technology updates and classroom additions.
