Construction and Facilities Updates
We are excited to launch this website as the hub to inform our students, staff and community members about the facilities initiative! The passage of Issue #8 in November 2019 was the starting point to a multi-year process that will have a tremendous impact on our community for many years to come. It is important to us that stakeholders have a voice and are informed every step of the way until the project's completion.
Welcome, check back often, and please reach out if you have questions or feedback!
