The District is preparing to begin mechanical, electrical, and plumbing upgrades at Scenic over the summer months, which will allow for increased cooling and air quality. But as the Central Point community continues to experience growth, the need for space has become a more emergent issue at Scenic.
To support this need and prepare for the upcoming remodel of the school, the District will be adding a new, permanent building at Scenic Middle School. The new building will be a custom modular construction and will allow the school to relocate classrooms during the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing upgrades and will be used for 6 additional classrooms once the work is completed. The District is thankful for the opportunity to maximize bond dollars to support a timely completion of projects at Scenic.
Over the next 18 months, the new building will be used for classes while each wing of the school is being upgraded. Upon completion of all phases of construction the new building will serve to reduce overcrowding, increase flexibility among educational programs, while providing capacity for additional growth in enrollment.
The district’s Chief Project Officer, Spencer Davenport, shared "I'm thrilled to report that we were able to find a way of avoiding additional costs in leasing portable classrooms and invest those funds into a permanent building which will serve our students for decades to come."
