Countryside Elementary

An estimated $6.9 million out of the $147 million referendum was spent at Countryside Elementary School, which includes all construction costs and non-construction items such as safety and security, furniture and technology. Key projects included:

  • Building one new classroom 
  • Renovating the library to create a STEM space
  • Upgrading the existing sensory room

Construction at Countryside began in Summer 2022 and was completed on time and within budget in winter 2023.
