At Canyon Park Junior High, one new building, which houses the administrative offices, library and a computer lab, is finished, along with the school’s performing arts facility.

Several schools in the district are in the midst of getting much needed facelifts. They’re courtesy of the Capital Projects Bond (approved in 2006), which provided $123 million for building modernizations and field upgrades.

The list of projects planned over the four-year span includes renovating seven schools, upgrading numerous systems (mechanical, heating, ventilation, roofing, flooring, boiler and seismic) district wide, upgrading playfields and playgrounds, resurfacing courts and making a variety of technology improvements.
