CSD Bond Oversight Committee Visit Schools to Observe Continued Bond Progress before end of 2022

Portland , OR ., Dec. 1, 2022 - The Centennial School District (CSD) Bond Oversight Committee (BOC) held its quarterly meeting on Thursday, December 1, 2022 and members toured several CSD sites, including Pleasant Valley Elementary, Powell Butte Elementary, and Centennial High School to view progress and hear other 2020 Bond project updates. 

At their first stop at Pleasant Valley Elementary, BOC members received updates about improvements to the building’s intercom system, interior lighting, and the security vestibule. Additional seismic improvements continue at the school including replacement of the building’s exterior brick walls,to match as closely as possible in color, pattern and texture as the building’s original brick

Next, the Committee gained insight into Powell Butte Elementary, where they could see up-to-date improvements made at this school, including an updated intercom system, new lighting, fire alarm system, and flooring.  

The Committee's final stop was Centennial High School which showcased the recently finished pool, with refreshed paint and utility hardware, and tiling across the entire pool interior.The pool also features a newly repaired concrete deck, and new plumbing system. Committee members welcomed the news with much excitement especially since this was the first revamp of the facility in over 20 years. The pool opened just a few weeks ago and students are using it for swim practice with their first swimming meet in the newly renovated pool slated for Thursday, December 8, 2022. 

At the end of the school tours, the BOC received additional status updates on various 2020 Bond projects including safety and security systems upgrades, mechanical system improvements, and the construction of the four elementary school gyms.  

We appreciate our committee members for their continued dedication in monitoring the progress of the 2020 Bond projects and for serving as a valuable conduit to the Board and community to share progress about the 2020 bond.
