Capital Projects Update


Blaine High School Construction Progress

The first of a three-phase construction project at Blaine High School is nearly complete and expected to finish in August 2017. When our high school students return from summer break, they will have access to a new cafeteria, a small theatre, CTE shop, and additional classroom space as well as new tennis courts. Staff and students have had a front row seat to watch this new building take shape, and we all look forward to the expanded educational opportunities that will be available in the new facility.

Phase II, which includes a two-story classroom building connecting Phase I to the Science Building, began in early July. Crews are preparing the site and foundation work will be ongoing during summer break. Phase III, which includes renovation of the library and office areas, is scheduled to begin in June of 2018.

As we wait to determine the full scope of available funding, the BHS stadium design is being reviewed to identify alternatives that will address facility needs. The timeline for consideration and future construction is not currently defined, but would likely represent a 4th phase in the construction of the high school. From 4:00-5:30 p.m. on Monday, July 17, the Board of Directors will hold a worksession to discuss alternatives that have been identified for the stadium design. No action will take place at this worksession.

We continue to look forward to students and staff being provided with a safe, responsive, adaptive, and inspiring facility that ultimately serves to support both individual and collective teacher and learner needs and interests.
