Salem-Keizer Public Schools Breaks Ground at North Salem High School

North Salem High is one of the first five schools beginning construction under the 2018 bond program.

In 2018, voters approved a $619.7 million bond measure to fund improvements for Salem-Keizer schools. Today, supporters of North Salem High School, including local officials, school board members, community supporters, school staff and students, gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking of the largest project in the 2018 bond program.

North Salem High is one of the first five schools planned to begin construction under the 2018 bond program. The school will receive 20 new general classrooms, one new science lab, two new career technical education program area spaces, new main and auxiliary gyms, replacement P.E. spaces, new spaces to support Special Education and much more.

“We couldn’t be more excited for the improvements planned for our schools,” said Superintendent Christy Perry. “Thanks to the patience and support of our community, we are able to implement substantial changes to our district that will help reinforce the ultimate goal of preparing all students for a successful life after graduation.”

Construction is only temporary. Though operations will be very different, commitment to student safety and success remains the highest priority through the construction period.

For more information on future groundbreakings, the status of a bond project or other projects funded by the 2018 bond program, please visit the Bond Program page on the district website.

The updated calendar does not apply to Waldo, Judson, North Salem or McNary – those schools remain on the original calendar so major construction will not be delayed.

*Please note that should any day be missed moving forward, SKPS will revisit the calendar to ensure compliance with state standards.*
