Progress as Promised: Ritenour Continues to Complete Proposition S Bond Issue Projects

  • Thanks to the community's tremendous support through the Proposition S bond issue, improvements continue at Ritenour schools and facilities to provide the best learning environment for all students and staff members.

    Proposition S is a $19.5 million zero tax rate change bond issue that voters overwhelmingly approved in June of 2020.  Ritenour is making the needed repairs and renovations without raising the tax rate for district residents.

    Since the summer of 2020, many projects have been completed, including new and resurfaced parking lots, energy-efficient lighting upgrades, much-needed brick tuckpointing, replacement of playground pads and HVAC replacement and updates.

    Construction has begun on two large renovation projects at Ritenour High School (RHS)  - a new fitness center and cafeteria upgrades. In December of 2022, the Ritenour Board of Education approved a bid of $3.9 million from Wachter Construction to complete these renovations at RHS. Both the new fitness center and upgraded cafeteria are scheduled to be completed for the start of the 2023-2024 school year.  

    “We thank our community for its continued support of our students, staff and school district,” said Ritenour Superintendent Dr. Chris Kilbride. “Our community should be very proud of the facilities that we offer to our students. This work is so important to protect the investment in the buildings where our students learn both today and in the future.”
