Construction Update Phase 1 and 2 – 6.03
SD4: Long-term Financial Stability and Fiscal Integrity

After reassessing the roofing projects at several schools, it was determined that portions of the roofing project could be completed utilizing an updated approach that would result in a total roofing project savings of $4.4 million. The cost savings allowed the District the opportunity to complete other essential projects at various schools such as unit ventilators, boilers, as well as a new water main at Grove Junior High.
