Voters passed a bond measure in 2018 to fund improvements across the entire district, including at Houck Middle School. Bond funding will provide nearly $9 million in additions and expansions at Houck to help relieve overcrowding, increase safety and security, support science education and more.

Highlights of the work planned at Houck include:
• Two new classrooms
• Two new science labs
• Cafeteria expansion
• Library-media center expansion
• Removal of portable classrooms
• Electronic badge access system upgrades
• Increased visibility of the main entry from the office, including a secured visitor check-in space

The district’s project management team is currently working with BBL Architects to finalize the drawings that construction contractors will use to add and improve the spaces at Houck.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2022 and is expected to be complete early in the fall of 2023.

Thank you, voters!
