In APS, we believe all students must have equitable access to technology and learning environments. One way that we ensure this is through bond-funded improvements to classrooms and technology. This fall, many students and staff will return to exciting changes in their buildings.
From security enhancements to classroom additions and remodels, dozens of our schools are receiving bond-funded improvements this summer. Below are just a few of the many projects underway.
Safety and Security Projects:
- Security camera upgrades at 21 schools
- Security vestibule enhancements at 11 schools
- Wireless Access Point Upgrades (vital for supporting classroom technology)
- Upgrades to interactive classroom technology
New Buildings, Building Additions and Classroom Remodels:
- Gateway High School - New Prostart kitchen and wellness center
- Rangeview High School - Six-classroom addition and interior remodeling
- Vista PEAK Preparatory - New STEM wing, school commons expansion and interior remodeling
- Kenton Elementary School - Cafeteria expansion
- Side Creek Elementary School - Parking lot addition plus computer lab and library expansions
- Mrachek Middle School - New replacement building
These projects are possible thanks to Aurora voters who passed our $300 million bond measure in November 2016. Bond funds are used to make improvements at each school and benefit every student. To learn more about APS bond projects, visit bond.aurorak12.org
