WSD Bond Update - April 24, 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.  Inside the new two-story addition, the best way to summarize the changes taking place is to show you with photos!  Lots of interior work is being completed including paint, carpeting, cupboards and wainscoting.  It’s exciting to see the classrooms come take shape!  

Over at the Gymnasium, this past month we’ve seen the roofing system installed. Inside, the contractor has been installing mechanical, electrical and plumbing lines. 

New! We’ve dedicated an album on Facebook to all the construction photos specific to the Washington Elementary site. Please visit here! 

If you’d like to check in on the progress, the school district has a web camera on the site so you can follow along day-to-day! 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. In the past weeks, underground work was completed to install electrical, utility lines and conduit. The foundation was installed, quickly followed by walls going up!  Soon the roof will be installed and then the HVAC, electrical and plumbing lines will begin to be placed.
