Summer maintenance preserves assets at Battle Ground schools

Crews work at Captain Strong Primary School

Crews have been hard at work this summer making improvements and scheduled maintenance repairs at Battle Ground Public Schools. The goal is for work to be completed by the time students return to school Aug. 27. The district budgeted $10,364,451 in 2018-19 to maintain and preserve the community’s investment in schools and provide safe, clean and secure learning environments. Of that, the district spent $1.5 million on larger summer projects. Below is a list of some of the more notable projects, which are largely funded thanks to levy dollars:
