You don’t have to have super powers to be on our construction team, but it doesn’t hurt!

There is a lot going on behind the scenes to keep our district running smoothly. The following construction projects are on the agenda for this school year. These projects are funded from the district’s construction budget, not by the 2019 bond.

Seismic upgrades

This is our second year of seismic upgrades. This year, Bethel High School will get diagonal bracing in the cafeteria and main gym to connect masonry walls with the wood framing. Pioneer Valley Elementary and Cedarcrest Middle will each get non-structural work, including the bracing of sprinkler pipes and some interior walls.
