Summer 2014 Bond ProjectsDuring the summer of 2014 twelve more schools received improvements and upgrades. The work fixed leaking and deteriorating roofs, and made seismic safety, accessibility and science classroom improvements. This was double the number of school projects that were completed in the summer of 2013
The schools that benefited from the 2014 Improvement Project bond work were: Arleta (K-8), Beach (PK-8), Boise- Eliot/Humboldt (PK-8), Chief Joseph (K-3), Creston (K-8), Grout (K-5), Hosford (6-8), James John (K-5), King (PK-8), Lane (6-8), Vernon (K-8) and Woodlawn (PK-8). Most of these schools were built over 65 years ago and are overdue for physical upgrades. More than half of all PPS schools were built before World War 2. This is the second year of the eight-year School Building Improvement Bond where up to 63 schools will eventually receive upgrades and improvements over consecutive summers.
PPS prioritized the summer 2014 projects based on expected seismic performance ratings; the condition of roofs, accessibility and science labs; the proportion of underserved students; and ability to accomplish the work effort in a timely manner. This is the second year of the eight-year School Building Improvement Bond where up to 63 schools will eventually receive upgrades and improvements over consecutive summers.
