Built in the 1980s, Salem Woods Elementary also models the old-style design of exterior hallways and many of the school’s systems are original. Construction of new homes in that area are putting the squeeze on space for students. This proposed project will: 

  • Improve safety and security systems; and 
  • Replace a portion of the school with a 2-story instructional building; and 
  • Also add room for more students 

Estimated cost is $23.5 million and this project is eligible for about $4.3 million in state construction assistance. If approved, construction would begin in 2018 after a design process involving students, families, staff and the community.
