The Carson City School District 2006 BOND was a $25 Million BOND project comprised of numerous components that were specific in nature to address many areas of concern and energy efficiencies throughout the District.
The District felt it was necessary to incorporate new technologies with respect to heating and air conditioning to reduce operation costs. The District also felt the second most crucial issue was to ensure the aging roofs at many schools would be either replaced or repaired to prevent more costly repairs in the future. Lastly, in staying consistent with energy efficiency and student safety, it was deemed necessary to renovate one of the oldest buildings in the District, Carson Middle School. The ultimate goal was to combine three separate buildings into one, discontinue use of 23,000 square feet of outdated portables that were costly to maintain, and provide the children a way to circulate between classrooms while staying in a controlled environment. This project was accomplished while maintaining a functioning campus of 1,200 students.
