Four of the district’s oldest, most inefficient school buildings will be replaced or renovated over the next few years, thanks to voters’ approval of the school bond measure in May 2013. River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary School is one of the four schools that will be replaced.
A design committee has been formed and design work has started on a new building, working with PiVOT Architecture of Eugene in association with DOWA-IBI Group of Portland. Public meetings will be held during the design process to provide opportunities for community input.
The current River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary School was built in 1953 and is in poor condition. The new school will provide better learning environments for students and will cost less to operate. Groundbreaking will occur in 2015 and the new school is expected to open in fall 2016.
