WSD Bond Update - January 23, 2018

In May 2015, the Woodburn community approved a $65 million bond. We continue to make progress on bond-funded projects to add space for students, make major repairs to maintain our schools, and improve security/technology systems. These proposed projects are scheduled along a 5­-year timeline (2015-2019) for completion.

Washington Elementary 

Construction of a 2-story addition is underway on the Washington Elementary site, which includes underground water lines for fire suppression system; Fire Department access roads; storm water management system; new covered play area; bus turn-around and staff parking; and a new gymnasium building foundation system. Currently, walls have been erected and the new roofing structure has been placed. Also, the covered entry for the new bus loop has been started. Inside the new two-story addition we are seeing progress as the mechanical, electric and plumbing is being roughed into the walls and wall board is being installed.

The school district has a web camera on the site so you can follow along from the ground up! To see what’s going on in real-time, please visit www.woodburnsd.org/bond-updates.

Success High School 

A new high school building for the Success Alternative program. A community meeting space will be included in construction. On the campus, a solar array is being installed to provide green energy, as well as educational opportunities. The Groundbreaking ceremony was held on November 8, 2017. Completion is expected by September 2018 in time for the next school year. Recently permits were received from the City of Woodburn for: Foundation, Electrical, and Plumbing work. Also, the District and the Project Manager are working with the City of Woodburn to finalize the building permit approval. Additionally, the design of the solar array will begin. The site grading work is complete and building foundations are underway.  Soon underground plumbing and electrical will be installed.
