New STEAM Studios, Libraries Planned for Jefferson, Washington Elementary Schools
New additions planned for Jefferson and Washington Elementary are scheduled to open in Winter 2019. The new additions are made possible by the voters’ approval of Proposition N in April 2017. Prop N is a $23 million no-tax-rate increase bond issue which is providing funds for new STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) studios, new secure entrances, parking areas, library media centers and other facility updates at Washington and Jefferson Elementary schools. The Prop N funds will also be used for a new Early Learning Center, and additional facility upgrades throughout the Collaborative.
