School Construction

The Palo Alto Unified School District has continued to improve its school facilities during the past two decades with the implementation of three Facilities Bonds:

  • Building for Excellence: 1999-2005
  • Strong Schools Bond - Measure A: 2008-Present
  • Strong Schools Bond - Measure Z: 2018-Present

Updates for projects currently under construction, individual school site facilities plans, and links to oversight committees are listed below.

Sun-kissed two-story building at JLS
Greene Middle School – New Library & CTE Classroom Building – Construction Documents Phase

Improvements at Greene include construction of a single story CTE classroom building and a two-story Food Service and Library building. There will also be renovation of vacated Library space in the J/K wing. The existing buildings E & H will be demolished to make way for the new construction.

Construction documents are being developed and scheduled to be submitted to DSA in February 2022. Construction is scheduled to start in the summer of 2023. This project will be phased and will impact the central quad area. Campus "make ready" projects include new HVAC to buildings A, B, F & L, new electrical service, and relocation of District data main point of entry. The drawings for these improvements have been submitted to DSA. Construction for the HVAC is scheduled to start in the summer of 2022 and will impact buildings A, B, F, & L. In November we completed a fire alarm site walk, continued coordination with Palo Alto utilities and finalized exterior and interior finishes selection.
