Construction Updates

June 2018 

Phase one of the East Valley High School modernization and expansion project is underway and on schedule! Slabs for the new addition have been poured and cinder blocks are being placed to create the wall structure. Contractors have begun pouring footings and are working on the stem walls for the northside fitness and wrestling facility. The slab for this addition will be poured shortly thereafter.


The existing parking lot has been removed to allow for the rerouting of existing and installation of new utilites for East Valley High School.


Contractors will continue to work on these additions throughout the summer months.

Construction Bid Accepted - (February 27, 2018)
During the Regular School Board Meeting on Monday, February 26, 2018, our East Valley Board of Directors accepted Resolution 364-17/18 to award the contract for our East Valley High School Modernization and Addition Project to Fowler General Construction, Inc., of Richland, Washington.

The contract came in under the original budget for the project at $40,986,000, allowing the Board of Directors and district administrators the ability to accept several alternate bids. The total bid, including all selected alternate bids, was priced just over $42 million. Phase one of the EVHS project is scheduled to begin the week of March 5, 2018. 
Capital Budget Passes (January 18,2018) - 
We are thrilled to announce that last night we received confirmation that the State Legislature passed the Capital Budget. As you may know, the hold on the Capital Budget stalled our East Valley High School Modernization and Expansion project. With this exciting news, we are preparing to move forward with putting our high school project out to bid and anticipate construction to begin soon. Thank you for your patience as we have endured this long process.
