Project description: Students at Hillcrest High School will have new classrooms and enhanced fire safety and security when the building’s update is completed. New locker rooms and administration areas are also in the works. The project also provides connectivity to the school’s gymnasium and upgrades mechanical systems in the building. The first phase of the project was completed in time for the start of the fall semester in 2021, with other updates to be completed by the end of 2022 – earlier than originally announced. Crews demolished a two-story classroom wing to make way for the new addition. Funding for the project comes from Proposition S, the $168 million school bond issue that passed in April 2018 to pay for 39 projects. The Hillcrest renovation project will serve 1,200 students.
