Capital Projects

The Capital Projects Department is responsible for managing and designing all new construction, modernization, and remodeling Capital pictureprojects. The Facilities Planning Department works hand in hand with Capital Projects to determine current and future needs of the district. Small Capital Projects, infrastructure projects,  and advance planning for future needs are also part of Capital’s focus.


Voters’ approval of the 2015 Bond allowed us to construct three replacement elementary schools and one new elementary school which opened in September 2019. The bond also funded the expansion and remodel of Pope Elementary which welcomed students back in the 2020-2021 school year.


Jean Victor Balin Starplose.pngState match funds resulting from those projects are being used for projects currently under construction including additions at Ballou and Stahl Junior High Schools,  the new Kessler Center, and a planned addition at Ferrucci Junior High.
