  • Preparing for Return to School Fall 2021

    Posted by Kelcey Davis on 8/18/2021 7:00:00 AM

    The Facilities team has been preparing the campus for safe, in-person learning. Below is an update on the many projects that are completed, in progress, or set to begin in the future.

     HVAC upgrades to buildings A, B, D, E, F , G, H, J,K , L, M , N and P.

    We are excited for the upgrades and installation of new Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) at Will Rogers. The great news is that Will Rogers has received their chillers and major units where this equipment is delayed at other schools. The HVAC units have been installed, but there has been a slight delay in the electrical service upgrade. Once we receive approval, the new transformers will be installed. We anticipate the HVAC systems will be working by early October.

    Despite delays on HVAC installation, the rooms have been adjusted to prepare provide health protective ventilation on day one. 

    Security Cameras

    Security cameras have been fully installed, programmed and staff has been trained in the operation of the security system. Security cameras are located around the perimeter of the campus and outdoor areas. They will support increased safety and property management.


    The Maintenance Department had planned to repair and replace the asphalt in front of rooms 507 to 511. Due to the other work occurring this summer, this work has been deferred to winter break.

    We are pleased to provide you with this modernization update and looking forward to a great start to the new school year!

  • Will Rogers Campus Planning

    Posted by Kelcey Davis on 3/3/2021 9:00:00 AM

    Campus Planning Process

    Over the course of 2020 the District worked with Johnson Favaro Architects, school teachers and staff and the local community to assess the existing campus and develop long range plans to align the facility with the District Education Specifications.

    School and Community voices were heard during multiple meetings, including two community meetings last year.  Suggestions from those meetings were incorporated into the Campus Plans.
