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. Roosevelt Middle School is one of the four schools that will be replaced.
Construction is set to begin soon. A design committee worked with Mahlum Architects of Portland in association with Robertson Sherwood Architects of Eugene to design the new building. Public meetings were held during the design process to provide opportunities for community input.
The current Roosevelt Middle School was built in 1950 and is in poor condition. The new school will provide better learning environments for students and will cost less to operate.
