Seismic Rehabilitation Project at Monroe High School

June 9, 2020

The current seismic rehabilitation project at Monroe High School is going well. This project, funded by a $2.5 million state grant and managed by Gerding Construction and Pivot Architecture, is designed to improve the safety of the building in the case of a seismic event. Previously, we completed a $1.5 million seismic project at Monroe Grade School. The current High School project is targeted at the oldest part of the main building and includes work on the foundation, walls and roof structures. In conjunction with this project, we are utilizing remaining bond dollars to complete several high priority projects, including adding an ADA ramp to the north entrance, updating offices and bathrooms, repairing HVAC systems, and updating safety and communication systems. We are in the process of selecting other high priority projects for our remaining bond dollars. The current construction project is on track to be completed prior to the start of the 2020-21 school year this fall.
