Eastmont’s school modernization project is proceeding on schedule. Superintendant, Garn
Christianson reports that over the course of the last two months engineers and architects have been involved in
the final planning and design work. Last fall voters approved a 30 million dollar bond measure to upgrade three
campuses, Grant Elementary, Sterling Middle School and Eastmont High School. Christianson says construction work
is scheduled to start at Grant School later this summer . .

The total cost of the construction
comes in at about 75 million dollars factoring in State equalization dollars. The legislature will consider the
State’s 44 million dollars in matching funds when they begin debate on the budget later this session.
