At its April 16 special board meeting, the Arlington Public Schools Board of Directors approved a contract with Woodridge Construction LLC for improvements at Pioneer Elementary School. The project, titled Pioneer Elementary School Envelope Improvements, has the following scope of work:

  • Remove and replace:
    • Existing roofing materials with new roofing
    • Siding and trim materials as needed
    • Defective vinyl clad windows
    • Building gutters
  • Make roof decking repairs as needed
  • Repair defective downspouts
  • Clean and repaint all wood or composite building siding, trim, and exposed structural steel components
  • Apply sealant and anti-graffiti coating to concrete masonry unit walls

Work begins this June after school ends for the year and is scheduled to be completed in August prior to the start of the 2024-25 school year. The project, funded by the 2020 Capital Levy, has a value of $1,351,050.

“We are grateful to Arlington voters for their approval of the 2020 Capital Levy and other levies that support the wellbeing of the community’s children,” said Brian Lewis, Arlington Public Schools Executive Director of Operations. “These improvements at Pioneer Elementary meet the district’s Capital Levy goal of extending the useful life of school buildings and providing a safe environment for learning for the benefit of the community.”

There are sufficient funds remaining from the 2020 Capital Levy to accomplish one additional project in the summer of 2025, which is similar envelope improvements work at Presidents Elementary. District staff are also planning the schedule for projects funded by the 2024 Capital Levy, approved by Arlington voters in February 2024.
