REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Schools is moving ahead with construction projects as part of the $27.5 million bond approved by voters in 2020. "We’ve got our Obsidian Middle School offices and entryway are being redone right now, as we speak. They started during Spring Break. And that’ll build out a more secure entryway for students coming into that space," Superintendent Charan Cline tells KBND News, "It’s all about security, there."
Dr. Cline says construction begins at two other schools this summer. "We’ve got an addition going on to Vern Patrick Elementary School and that’ll start breaking ground as soon as students are out. And the same over at Tom McCall Elementary. Both have new wings going on over there." Each of those new wings will include six classrooms.
Later work is planned for nearly every other school in the district. A full rundown of the projects is available online.
