2022-2024 Capital Projects Replacement Levy
Capital Projects Levy - November 8, 2022
East Valley Central - Commons/Cafeteria Expansion Project
The East Valley School District is requesting a 2-year capital improvement levy to allow for the expansion of the East Valley Central (EVC) commons/cafeteria. The expansion would increase seating capacity of the cafeteria from 240 to 600+.
Since original construction in 2005, enrollment at EVC has grown by 200 students (100 within the last 5 years). This increase has caused overcrowding during lunch periods and has limited the use of the facility for other student and community related events.
Note: Approximately 270 students eat lunch each period. The current cafeteria capacity of 240 requires those extra 30+ students to find seating outside (year-round), eat in hallways or classrooms.
