Building 4J’s Future: Share Your Views!

 4J school board asks, “What’s your priority?”

The 4J school board wants to hear from you about how and when to replace or renovate buildings and materials that no longer serve our students well. The board is considering a potential bond measure to be placed on the November 2018 ballot, and is asking community members about their views on priorities and how to proceed.

Please join the conversation by attending an in-person community forum or completing the online survey. Community forums have been held on Feb. 20 and 24, and four more are scheduled on Feb. 26, Feb. 27, March 1 and March 8. The forum on March 8 will be held in Spanish. Spanish interpretation will be provided at all community forums.

Most of 4J’s school buildings were constructed in the 1940s to 1960s, and some are even older. Other capital improvements are needed due to changing enrollment, educational program needs and aging buildings and materials.

The district’s long-range facilities plan, updated in 2013 after significant community input, calls for bond measures in 2013 and 2018 to replace, renovate or remodel several school buildings and make other improvements. Voters approved a bond measure in 2013 and replaced four aging buildings—Roosevelt Middle School, Arts & Technology Academy, Howard Elementary School and River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary School—and make other building improvements, upgrade technology and curriculum, replace school buses, and more.

The school board is now considering a potential bond measure in 2018. No decisions have been made yet. Your input is important.
