See the improvements in our schools!
Community support was critical to passing the Safe and Successful Schools bond referendum in 2015. Funds from the bond provide District 196 students with safer buildings, additional and upgraded space for learning and increased access to technology as a learning tool. Over the summer, major construction projects were completed at schools across the district. This fall, we hosted our first showcase and displayed improvements at four of our schools in Apple Valley. Please join us as we tour the upgraded spaces at three of our schools in Rosemount.
Tuesday, May 14, 6-7:30 p.m. at:
Rosemount Elementary School, 3155 143rd Street West
Rosemount Middle School, 3135 143rd Street West
Rosemount High School, 3335 142nd Street West
Rosemount Elementary features a new secure entrance and office area, upgraded security equipment and new bus loop behind the school. The bus loop relieves congestion at both the elementary and middle school.
Rosemount Middle received cosmetic improvements to the exterior, as well upgrades to the parking lot, student drop-off and pickup areas and access roads. All middle schools also received some new furniture in several learning spaces.
Rosemount High School underwent extensive renovations to the exterior and the interior, which included reconfiguring learning spaces and creating more secure entrances. Most visible is the reconfiguration of the front parking lot. Additional parking spaces were added and the new layout diverts traffic around the lot, no longer allowing outside traffic to cut through.
Take the tour! Begins promptly at 6 p.m.
Meet at Rosemount Elementary.
See the upgrades and improvements to our Rosemount campus, which includes a walking tour from Rosemount Elementary to Rosemount Middle. Then board a District 196 bus for a ride down to Rosemount High. The bus will return participants back to the elementary lot. Parking will be limited.
