Superintendent's Message

Hewins
February / March 2017
01/31/2017
The first half of the academic school year is now behind us, as well as our successful bond election (67.5% approval). As planned, we were able to sell half of our bonds on December 13. The rates were good, and our credit rating was strong. Now the real work begins as we enter the planning, design, and development stage to prepare for construction. Remember, we have some very large projects and they cannot all happen at once so we will be in the construction mode for the next 5 - 7 years. It is incredibly exciting, but will also be a little disruptive and sometimes a mess in the middle. Your patience and understanding of temporary inconveniences will be appreciated as we all keep our eyes on the prize of each respective project as it occurs over time. The initial projects that will break ground in late spring/early summer will be the new “state of the art” STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Lab at Washington High School and the demolition and replacement of a new and larger gymnasium at Ford Middle School.
