JPS Bond Project Updates
HVAC Unit Installation
Our work on updating the HVAC systems throughout the district is underway at the Jr. & Sr. High buildings. The Jr. High will be 75% completed this summer and Sr. High will be 30% complete by the end of August. The remaining rooms in these buildings will be completed throughout the 2021-2022 school year. These buildings were selected to be replaced first because they had the oldest systems in the district. We are excited to have many rooms climate controlled to start the 2021-2022 school year.
The visitor’s sections of bleacher are being repaired due to years of water damage that eroded the sand foundation beneath it. This project will be completed for our upcoming fall athletic seasons.
Additional Music Room at Jenison Junior High
New Music Room
The former soccer field to the south of the Junior High building is being excavated for the music room addition at the south end of the building. This project is expected to be completed in December of 2021. In addition, a parking lot to the south of this addition will accommodate parking for 250 vehicles. This new parking lot will not be completed for use until summer of 2022. Junior High Soccer games for the fall of 2021 will be played on the west field across from the Jenison Aquatic Center.
Over 1,500 new Chromebook and iPad devices have been purchased and prepped for our students to use this fall. This will provide us with a 1-to-1 device environment for the 2021-2022 school year. In addition to devices, new projectors will be installed in every classroom throughout the district.
