A Groundbreaking ceremony will be held May 30 as the district makes us of funding approved by voters in 2017
RIDGEFIELD — The Ridgefield School District is ready to break ground on an expansion project at the high school.
A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Wed., May 30, in the courtyard of Ridgefield High School, 2630 South Hillhurst Road.
The event is open to the community. It marks the beginning of construction as part of the second of four phases included in the district’s bond proposal that voters approved in February 2017.
“The high school’s new two-story 42,000-square-foot facility will be built on the space now occupied by the high school’s administration offices and library,” the district said in a press release. “ It will house a new science learning wing, special education instruction, fine arts, media services, a college career center and additional general educational classrooms to accommodate the district’s rapidly growing student enrollment.”
Construction will begin in mid-June, immediately after the school year ends, and it is scheduled to be complete by fall 2019, just in time for the 2019-2020 school year.
