Keeping our Students, Safe, Warm, and Dry

  • Washoe County School District (WCSD) has invested $272 million in repairs to our older schools since 2016. This includes the installation of new roofs, HVAC systems and boilers, as well as upgrades to make our schools more energy efficient and safe. Investing in our older buildings is a high priority for WCSD, as we know that students learn best when the buildings they are in keep them safe, warm, and dry. The additional funding we've received from the 2016 ballot initiative has been instrumental in helping us achieve this goal.  

    We invite you to review details and information about the completed and upcoming repairs at all WCSD schools, in our Data Gallery.
