The public is invited to see the final design of Ogden Elementary School at an open house on Thursday, March 8, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. A virtual tour of the new school will simulate walking through the halls and into the different spaces of the future building. The open house will be held in the media center at 8100 NE 28th Street. Members of the school planning team will be available to answer questions.
Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and will continue through the 2018-19 school year, with the new school opening fall 2019. Students will continue to attend classes in the current building while their new school is being built on the northeast corner of the site.
Funding for the replacement Ogden comes from a bond measure passed by voters in February 2017. Bond dollars also will pay for seven other replacement schools, three new schools and major upgrades at five schools. Various improvements are being made at every other school in the district. A complete list can be found on the district’s website at http://vansd.org/reschools/.
