The Capital Projects Department is responsible for administration of the District's Bond projects. This involves managing the planning, design and construction of new facilities, as well as the modernization and renovation of existing school buildings and other facilities. The Pasco School District serves over 18,000 students and 30 school and support facilities.
The funding for school construction, facility improvements, and property purchases mostly comes from local voters through bond elections. These funds are separate from the district's general fund and by law, cannot be used for day-to-day operations or to address budget shortfalls.
A capital project is a project to construct either new facilities or make significant, long-term renewal improvements to existing facilities and grounds. When we build a new building, modernize an existing school, or construct an addition, the project is planned to meet the district’s educational standards as well as the specific needs of the individual school.
We were thrilled to host a groundbreaking ceremony for new Comprehensive High School #3 on Thursday, August 17. We had an incredible turnout and are grateful for the support of our community as we embark on this exciting journey to provide an exceptional education for our students.
