Lindsay Unified School District

Location: Lindsay, CA – Tulare County
Total Program: $71 million
Financing: $20.7 million GO Bond
$51 million State Aid

The Lindsay Unified School District’s construction program consists of the construction of a new Lindsay High School and Roosevelt Elementary School and modernization improvements to existing facilities. In 2008, the District successfully passed Measure “B”, a $20.7 million General Obligation Bond. CFW assisted the District in securing approximately $51 million in State Aid through the State’s Hardship, Joint Use, and Career Technical programs. In addition, the District successfully received approximately $5 million in Qualified Zone Academy Bond (QZAB) authorization from the State resulting in costs savings through lower interest borrowing.

The District proudly celebrated  the grand opening of the new Lindsay High School in December 2010. The school provides comprehensive high school facilities including thirty eight new classrooms, vocational education facilities to improve career opportunities, a new library/media center to improve student access to information and technology, and a new gymnasium for school and community use.

Construction for the new Roosevelt Elementary School is currently underway and is scheduled to be completed in August 2011. This school is located on approximately 20 acres and includes twenty-three new classrooms, playfields, playcourts, a multipurpose facility so that students have an indoor eating space and assembly area, support facilities, and parking. The buildings are oriented around a courtyard which is intended to be the hub of activity.

The construction of these schools have created new job opportunities for local trades and construction workers, as well as some new permanent school jobs. The District is proud to do their part to help stimulate the economy and build better schools.
