Safety and Security is an Urgent Priority
Our high Schools and middle Schools have multiple points of entry and every school in the district has communications systems, locks, front entries, fire panels, alarms, and security systems in need of repair or replacement.
Our School Buildings are Inefficient and in Need of Repair
The average age of a school in the Redmond School District is 43 years old and some schools are nearly 100 years old. This means electrical, heating, and cooling systems are inefficient, out-of-date and in some cases so old the district cannot find replacement parts anymore.
Some Schools Need Replacement
The most urgent priority is M.A. Lynch Elementary School. Built in 1965, it is an outdated and inefficient building that would be too costly to renovate. An architectural assessment of M.A. Lynch found inadequate learning spaces, air quality issues, safety concerns and significant problems with siding, windows and roof.
Old and Outdated Academic Spaces
Many of our schools lack the basic technology, collaborative learning spaces and infrastructure needed to give our students the tools they need to graduate college and be career ready.
