In November 2016, Aurora voters approved a $300 million bond measure to fund improvements at every school in the district. The program provides approximately $280 million for building improvements and nearly $20 million for technology enhancements. Construction will be completed over a six-year period, beginning in 2017 and ending in 2023.

In addition to bond funds, APS will receive a grant of up to $16 million toward the construction of the school from the Colorado Department of Education’s Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) Program.
