Anchorage schools win approval of bonds

April 1, 2008
$43.7 million project will renovate 2 elementaries and upgrade other facilities
Voters in Anchorage, Alaska, have approved a $43.7 million bond request for significant upgrades at two aging elementary schools and improvements at other school buildings across the city. One of the schools that will be upgraded--Sand Lake Elementary-- was built in 1958. The second school in line for a major renovation--Chester Valley--was constructed in the aftermath of the 1964 earthquake. Both schools need significant renewal to meet safety codes and educational program needs. Projects at other schools will improve emergency communications, add sprinklers, replace roofs and heating systems, upgrade electrical systems and tracks, and improve traffic flow. More than 62 percent of the costs will be covered by the state.To read The Anchorage Daily News article, click here.
