Capital Projects

In 2015, Monroe voters approved a Capital Projects Bond totaling $110,970,000. In addition, Monroe School District received roughly $20.5 million in State Construction Assistance Program funding and $640,000 in Mitigation Impact Fees, to fund a total of roughly $132 million in capital construction and improvements.

As promised to our community as part of the ballot measure, this money was dedicated to building the new Park Place Middle School, modernizing Salem Woods Elementary School, modernizing and expanding Frank Wagner Elementary School and Hidden River Middle School, and for infrastructure and safety and security improvements throughout the entire district. These projects were determined to be the highest priority by the Capital Projects Steering Committee during their many meetings with the community prior to placing the measure on the ballot in 2015.
