Gresham-Barlow School Bond projects are taking shape!

It's been nearly two years since passage of the Gresham-Barlow School Bond, and significant construction is underway across the district. The new CTE space is open to students at  Barlow High School , and crews have finished demolition of the old auditorium and installed a crane to continue construction at  Gresham High School . Meanwhile, this month, walls will start to rise from the construction sites at  East Gresham  and  North Gresham  Elementary schools, each of which are slated to open to students next autumn. Be sure to check out the Gresham-Barlow School Bond website for more information on these four major construction projects and other bond-related investments around the district:  http://gresham-barlowbond.org
