What are the conditions of Estacada Schools?
Health, Safety & Security Concerns
- ADA updates are needed at all schools and across all facilities.
- Key safety and security measures such as up to date electronic locks, emergency communications systems and security cameras are either out of date or do not exist.
- Classroom temperatures vary widely, HVAC and air handling systems are aging, inefficient and in some cases nonexistent.
Our Schools Are Aging and in Need of Repair
- Major mechanical systems in all school buildings across the district are in need of repair, replacement or installation. In many cases they have reached the end of their useful life and are very inefficient.
- Stadium, football field, court, community field and parking lots need improvements in order to continue to serve the community.
Overcrowding and Lack of Space for Hands-On Learning & Outdated Technology
- Both Elementary schools are operating at near to full capacity, limiting ability to provide small class sizes and implement social distancing needs.
- Spaces for hands on learning like CTE and STEM are either too small or nonexistent.
- Technology infrastructure and technology used in the classrooms no longer meets today’s educational standards.
The average Estacada School District building is over 50 years old. The district's last school bond was passed 20 years ago, and was used to build Clackamas River Elementary, create more classroom space at both River Mill and Eagle Creek elementaries, significantly update and remodel the almost one century old Estacada Middle School, and provide basic repairs at Estacada High School.
