Blaine School District's $45M Capital Projects Bond initiative was approved by voters in the February 2015 Special Election. Our district is privileged to have the opportunity to make much needed improvements to multiple facilities. In the months ahead, we are committed to keeping our constituents informed of the progress that is being made specific to planning for and the delivery of our commitments.
Blaine High School Construction Progress
The first of a three-phase construction project at Blaine High School was completed in the Fall of 2017. During the 2017-18 school year, students and staff have enjoyed the expanded opportunities available in this new facility which includes a high school cafeteria, a small theatre, CTE shop, and additional classroom space.
Phase II, which includes a two-story classroom building connecting Phase I to the Science Building, began in early July 2017. The building was completely dried in by Spring Break, and progress is visible on the exterior finishes. For the remaining weeks of this school year, crews will continue to work on the new building's interior. Phase III, which includes renovation of the library and office areas, is scheduled to begin in June of 2018.
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. Please look below for additional details on this and other Blaine School District facility improvements.
