EDMOND — Construction of a new elementary school, classroom additions at three other elementary schools and the renovation of Boulevard Academy — Edmond's alternative high school and the oldest building in the district — are some of the projects nearing completion or already completed following a summer of extensive construction in the Edmond School District.
“Summer is always a very busy time in a district this size as we work to maintain and upgrade existing facilities as well as expand facilities to accommodate for the rapid growth in our student population,” Superintendent David Goin said.
Among the projects completed or nearing completion are:
construction of Frontier Elementary at 4901 Explorer Drive;
classroom additions at Angie Debo, Centennial and Washington Irving elementary schools;
renovation of classrooms, restrooms and the media center at Northern Hills Elementary.
Other projects include installation of new roofs at Northern Hills and Edmond North High School; installation of new carpet and tile at Cheyenne Middle School; secured entrances at Sequoyah Middle School, Central Middle School, Russell Dougherty Elementary and Ida Freeman Elementary; and renovation of Boulevard Academy.
Board President Jamie Underwood said she is impressed by the work done this summer, especially the renovation of Boulevard Academy, 215 N Boulevard.
“I'm thankful that voters agreed to pass a bond issue to refurbish this wonderful building. We were able to preserve its history while modernizing the interior to include new restrooms, windows, doors, plumbing, heating and air conditioning,” Underwood said.
