This school year, many APS students and staff members are returning to exciting improvements at their buildings. Thanks to bond-funded construction, schools across the district recently received new learning spaces, updated classroom technology and enhanced safety and security.
Over the summer, dozens of projects were completed including several larger additions at Montview Elementary School, Aurora Frontier P-8, Murphy Creek P-8 and Hinkley High School. These four projects added classrooms that will support the expansion of academic programs within each building.
Contractors also completed the final phase of security vestibule installations at 13 elementary schools, which will enhance safety and security protocols at those buildings.
Below are just a few of the many exciting improvements across the district:
- 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
- New P-8 School Building - Construction began on a P-8 building in east Aurora
- Aurora Science and Tech Middle School - Construction began a 6-12 building
- CSU-Global Campus - Construction was completed on a new postsecondary building
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.
