Roosevelt gets more upgrades starting this summer
Starting this summer and continuing over the next two years, we will be making additional building improvements at Roosevelt High School. These improvements are possible because of taxpayer support of PPS School Building Improvement Bonds.
Historic window restoration is underway
Work will start with the restoration of the school’s existing 178 historic windows. We will maintain the classic look of the school while improving energy efficiency and the comfort level in the building. Window restoration will begin in early June and is scheduled to be completed before the end of the year.
The Roosevelt Phase 4 project begins this fall
Starting this fall, work will begin on the fourth phase of the Roosevelt modernization project. The Roosevelt Phase 4 project provides a new 10,000 square-foot addition to improve the school's Maker Space and CTE program.
We will also convert the current Makerspace into a 1,161 sq. ft. science classroom and convert the current 3,016 sq. ft. Construction Technology CTE space into the Makerspace/CTE Lab. The additional 10,000 sq. ft. will include a 3,250 sq. ft. Construction Technology CTE space on the first floor; the second floor will include four 850 sq. ft. general education classrooms, with a flexible partition wall between two of the classrooms.
More opportunities for students
Moving the Construction Technology CTE program into the ground floor of the addition will provide enough space for it to become a true commercial construction CTE program, with opportunities to learn welding, plumbing, electrical and wood framing. Work on the Phase IV project is expected to be completed in approximately one year and ready for students in the fall of 2021.
