In Aurora Public Schools, we utilize bond dollars to ensure that all students have equitable access to learning opportunities, technology and environments. Right now, several large and exciting bond-funded construction projects are underway in our district, and dozens more are expected to begin once school is out for the summer.
This spring, Montview Elementary School, Aurora Frontier P-8, Murphy Creek P-8 and Hinkley High School are all receiving building additions and upgrades. These four projects will expand the capacity at each building and allow the schools to continue to make the best use of space. Construction is expected to be completed before the start of the 2019-20 school year.
In summer 2019, more schools will receive bond-funded upgrades. Below are just a few of the exciting improvements that will take place.
- Multiple sites -
- New security cameras and PA system updates
- Classroom technology updates
- Security vestibule improvements
- Window replacements
- Aurora Central High School - New football field turf
- Pickens Technical College - Commons area remodel
Construction will also be complete in summer 2019 on a CSU-Global campus that will support recent APS graduates and staff who choose to pursue postsecondary education programs and certificates. Both students and staff are already taking advantage of huge discounts on tuition and convenient online programs.
In addition to these projects, APS is breaking ground on a new P-8 school that will support the growing needs of families along the E-470 corridor. It is expected to open in fall 2020.
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.
