Bus Garage - Phase 1 - Complete/Warranty/Punch-list
The Bus Garage facility was among the first projects to get started on campus.
Completed: demolition of old bus garage, construction of new bus garage, installation of mechanical gate

High School - Phase 2/3 - Wrapping Up
The High School is where a majority of the 2017 bond funds went to improvements. This building was selected for phase two because education is at the heart of what we do. Therefore, if unexpected costs/higher costs occurred, they would be taken out of other areas of the bond budget, instead of the high school building itself. This project oversaw the renovation of all classrooms, the creation of a new music suite, a new weighlifting space, and a new secure front entrance addition.
Completed: classroom remodels, library, music suite, weightlifting space, mechanicals, front office addition, air systems on roof
To be completed: maker-space, auditorium lighting, high school cafeteria floor, punch-list items
Elementary School & Middle School - Phase 1/3 - Completed/Wrapping Up
The elementary school received new playground equipment and fences in phase 1. In phase 3, the elementary school is getting a secure lower level entry. The middle school received new lockers.
Completed: playground, fences, middle school lockers
To be completed: elemenatry secure front entrance addition, punch-list items
Athletics and Grounds - Phase 3 - Wrapping Up
A new high school stadium was built featuring a turf field, and an 8 lane track. The turf field will allow for easier scheduling and maintenance, as well as the opportunity to host band competitions. The new track will allow Fennville to host track meets for the first time in almost a decade! The bleechers are now ADA compliant and the restrooms facilities are up to code regarding their # of toilets per bleecher seats. The baseball field was reconstructed as was the softball field.
Original plans called for a new stadium and fields to be built in the field north of campus. However, rising costs and regulations required the board to weigh making cuts from elsewhere in the project or scale back on the athletics/grounds project. One major impact was the designation of most of the north field as being "wetlands" which would have cost significant amounts of money to preserve land elsewhere, as required by Michigan law.
Completed: athletic stadium, track, field, most baseball/softball projects
To be completed: punch-list items, concrete repairs and replacement, baseball field adjustments/grading, fencing replacement
