Project Schedule

  • With the bond's passage, our next step is to engage our school communities with the planning and design of the new schools. 

    FWPS will have a robust process to incorporate stakeholder voice including our students, staff, parents, and community. This includes community forums to share and receive comments throughout the design process. Also, the community will be informed of progress updates throughout each school's construction.

    The district has developed a preliminary project schedule for the 2017 bond that is subject to change. The schedule is structured in a way to maintain current tax levels. 

    The initial projects include four elementary schools, Totem Middle School and Thomas Jefferson High School. As a high school is the most costly to build, it is placed earlier in the timeline in an effort to mitigate inflation.
