New Look for District’s Older Schools

Dramatic “makeovers” are underway this summer at three schools in the Chula Vista Elementary School District, thanks to general obligation bond funding approved by voters in 2012 under Proposition E.

Prop E created a School Facilities Improvement District (SFID) encompassing 31 of our then-44 schools. Construction crews have been busily making improvements this summer to Ella B. Allen School, Hilltop Drive Elementary and Vista Square Elementary.

Last year, Castle Park, Lilian J. Rice and Rosebank schools were the first to be modernized under Prop E. The renovations at each school include electrical upgrades and undergrounding of utilities, energy enhancements to heating and air-conditioning, window replacements, and enhanced wireless technology access (WiFi).

At Allen, Hilltop Drive, and Vista Square schools (see photos), the finishing touches are scheduled to be completed in time for students’ return to class on Tuesday, September 8.

Most of CVESD’s other campuses started the new school year on July 22.
