Two APS Schools to Use Construction Calendars in 2018-19

Mrachek Middle School Groundbreaking

APS utilizes bond dollars to ensure every student has equitable access to learning environments that support them in reaching their full potential. Over the next year, two APS schools will be receiving major bond-funded improvements.

A replacement building at Mrachek Middle School will be completed in summer 2018. Montview Elementary School is receiving a whole building remodel in 2019. Because of these major construction projects, both schools will use a modified calendar for the 2018-19 school year.

Mrachek students and staff are excited to start school in their new building this fall. The new building will feature a two-story 130,000 square foot school with separate learning communities for each grade level and serve up to 1,000 students. All students will begin school on September 10 and finish the school year on June 6, 2019.

Montview’s project will include a two-classroom addition, replacement of the school’s HVAC system and updates to flooring and fixtures throughout all learning spaces in the building. These improvements will not only increase capacity, but will ensure that the building design aligns with the school’s curriculum.

Montview students in grades 1-5 will begin school on Aug. 6 while Pre K and Kindergarten will begin on Aug. 13. All students will end their school year early on April 24, 2019.

These projects are possible thanks to Aurora voters who approved a $300 million bond measure in 2016. To learn more about APS bond projects, visit
