The UHS media center went through a much needed transformation over the summer. The new media center now has two student-centered breakout spaces, an enlarged computer lab and additional offices. These spaces have also been outfitted with collaborative and modern furnishings.
Work has started on the bus garage to modernize this facility. A portion of the old warehouse is being utilized to create a new dispatch center, offices and a conference room. The old driver lounge is being doubled in size and turned into a training room and modern break space. Demolition is nearly complete, the plumbers have put in the underground plumbing and the HVAC contractor is installing new ductwork.
Classrooms are expanding and the entryway is being redesigned at FECC. Check back for progress reports and more photos every week.
Improvements and secure vestibule construction have begun at FUEL. Check back weekly for progress reports and more images.
The US Federal Reserve has set fixed interests at record lows to prevent inflation during the current economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic response. Selling bonds at the low interest rates of 1.89% and 0.76% means that taxpayers will owe less money to bond holders over the 21 year lifetime of the bond: $4,740,798 less, to be more precise. These savings are directly passed on to taxpayers. This interest rate was also made possible by an "A+" rating due to positive enrollment trends and extremely strong wealth holdings across the district. We are so excited to share this good news with all of you, and so proud to serve a community that supports our local schools and voted for our school improvement bonds at an outstandingly high rate in the 2020 special election.
