In Aurora Public Schools, we utilize bond dollars to ensure that all students have equitable access to learning opportunities, technology and environments. In summer 2018, dozens of schools will receive bond-funded updates. Below are just a few of the exciting improvements that will take place:
- Multiple sites -
- Solatube skylights to improve classroom lighting
- New security cameras and PA system updates
- Classroom technology and wireless access updates
- Security vestibule improvements
- Kenton Elementary - Cafeteria expansion
- Laredo Elementary - New swings and play pit
- Gateway High School - New wellness center
In addition to these projects, construction continues on the Mrachek replacement building and classroom additions at Vista PEAK Preparatory and Rangeview High School. These projects are expected to be completed in summer 2018.
We are grateful to the citizens of Aurora who approved a $300 million bond measure in November 2016, which will make improvements at every school in APS and benefit every student.
