University City High gets New Field and Track

One of the last Prop. S projects completed during this school year was at University City High School. The project included a new synthetic turf football field, an all-weather track, new lighting and a new scoreboard for the stadium. To celebrate, the school will hold a dedication ceremony during its first varsity football home game in the fall.

This is one of nearly 40 major construction projects that have been completed since Prop. S passed in 2008, including College, Career and Technical Education facilities, new classroom buildings, rebuilt high school stadiums, other synthetic turf fields and all-weather tracks, air conditioning, and student drop-off and pick-up improvements. There are approximately 65 projects in the design phase, and nearly 20 in various stages of construction. More construction projects will begin during the summer.

Prop. S funds are generated by a general obligation bond measure that was passed in 2008 to repair and renovate district schools. The funds cannot be used to pay teacher or administrator salaries.
