2023 Summer Construction Projects

Most school construction projects are funded by voter-approved capital levies. Additional funding may be provided by grants.

While major school construction projects — school replacement, modernization, and additions — take multiple years, smaller projects are scheduled during the summer break to avoid disruption to teaching and learning.

Often termed summer projects because of the timing, most of these projects are also referred to as systems projects because they involve part of the school building’s systems: heating and ventilation, safety, security, windows and doors, roofing, electrical or plumbing, playgrounds and other site improvements, exterior cladding (siding, painting, repairs), and seismic improvements for earthquake safety. 

Projects starting in summer 2023, or that are underway, are funded by the 2022 Buildings, Technology, and Academics/Athletics V Capital Levy (BTA V), the 2019 Building Excellence V Capital Levy (BEX V), and the 2016 Buildings, Technology, and Academics IV Capital Levy (BTA IV).
