Avondale School District Strategic Updates

Developing a strategic plan for Avondale School District helps to identify the direction of the District within the framework of our mission and vision. It also outlines the goals, strategies, and actions to ensure the plan is implemented. Every year we actively work to implement the strategic plan in the classroom, around our buildings, and throughout the district. Explore the Avondale 2020 Strategic Plan & Progress updates below to view some of the ways we are taking action!

2021 Bond Project Progress

Work to Begin on Avondale High School Parking Lot and Grounds

In the Summer of 2021, the Avondale High School parking lot and main entrance will be renovated to address building safety concerns as well as concerns about the flow of buses, cars and pedestrians in the current design of the parking lot.  The renovations are made possible through funds generated by the passage of a $30.7 million bond proposal in November, 2017.

View an update on the progress of the 2017 bond projects here.

Highlights of the parking lot renovations include: 
- Relocation of the current “bus loop” to the back of the building utilizing the staff parking lot.
- Reconfiguration of the current “bus loop” to accommodate school-day visitor parking and parent drop-off and pick-up.
- Designation of the main parking lot as student parking during school days/hours.
- Management of pedestrian traffic into the school building (2021-22 school year).
   -   During the school day at arrival and dismissal, students who park in the student parking lot or who arrive or depart school via parent or guardian transport, will use the current student entrances / exits in the Field House Lobby.
   -   All other times during the school day, students and visitors will use a newly constructed safe and secure entryway (once complete).
-  Expanded and enhanced student gathering areas and outside classroom space between the planned parent drop-off / pick-up area and the building.  Sidewalks, short-wall seating, and landscaping adds inviting accents and functionality.
-  Complete re-build of the paved areas rather than re-surfacing to support longer life of the parking lots and sidewalks.

Avondale School District Bond Project Schedule, Progress & Completed Projects

On November 7, 2017, the Avondale School District Community approved a $30.7 million bond proposal that made it possible for the District to move forward with necessary infrastructure upgrades. These upgrades include enhancements to safety, security, and technology; as well as building operation upgrades, such as boiler and lighting replacements, that are designed to save the District money and provide return on investment. Technological advancements in areas like lighting, cooling, and heating have resulted in more energy-efficient equipment. Moving to upgrade to the more cost-effective equipment ensures that necessary improvements are made without impacting the operating budget that supports our classrooms.
