Photos of construction at the new elementary schools being built in East and South Salem are available online at the district's Flickr page. Both schools are scheduled to open for the 2012-13 school year.
Help us name the new schools
You can still submit your ideas for names for the new schools. To learn more about nominating names for the schools, please read our story.
School attendance area boundaries will change next school year because of the new schools. Public meetings are scheduled to discuss the issue and to get feedback from the public.
About the project
The new elementary schools are being constructed with funding provided by the construction bond approved by voters in 2008. Bond funds can only be used for projects associated with the 2008 bond measure, like overcrowding and repairs, and cannot be used for school operations. Thanks to the community's support of the bond, our schools are safer, healthier and less crowded learning environments for students.
