District Construction Update

The citizens of Post Falls School District approved a $19.5 million Bond Levy in March of 2015 to fund numerous construction projects throughout the district. The following is an update regarding the progress to complete the approved projects:
River City Middle School Second Story Addition The River City addition was available for students and staff when school started on September 8. Eighth grade students have occupied the second story classroom addition. The district owes a debt of gratitude to our contractor, CNI, for being able to complete the project on time. The construction timeline was very short considering the size of the project.
New Elementary School The district conducted a bid opening on July 28, 2015 and has awarded the bid to Contractors Northwest Inc. (CNI). The project construction is underway. Footings have been poured and masonry block walls are being built. The timeline is to have the outer shell completed before winter (“dried in”) in order to allow interior work to continue. The new school will be ready for occupation prior to the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year.
Mullan Trail Elementary School Update This summer Mullan Trail Elementary School went through a major update with the addition of new energy efficient windows, exterior siding, new dropped interior ceilings, new carpet and paint. The project was ready for staff and students this fall.
Heating Units The district installed new heating units in three buildings this summer; Frederick Post Learning Center, Mullan Trail Elementary School and Seltice Elementary School. The new units replaced units that were over 35 years old. The new heating units are energy efficient models.
High School Auditorium The district architect will begin putting the finishing touches on construction documents for the Post Falls High School Performing Arts Auditorium project. The goal is to put the project out to bid prior to the new year. Upon bid approval and appropriate construction weather, the district would like to begin construction early this spring.
High School Auxiliary Gymnasium The district architect is also working on the construction design documents in preparation to bid this project at the same time as the High School auditorium project. This project will be constructed during the spring and summer of 2016 as well.
Frederick Post Learning Center Update The district will update the Frederick Post building during the summer of 2016. This major update will include the addition of new energy efficient windows, exterior siding, new dropped interior ceilings, new carpet and paint.
West Ridge Elementary School Classroom Addition Two classrooms will be added to West Ridge Elementary School during the summer of 2016.
