March 26, 2024

Gilbert Schools is excited about the future of the district. With 83 percent community support for our bond referendum in November of 2023, we are thrilled to be moving forward with new facilities throughout the district.

Construction on several projects is scheduled to begin in the near future. To keep our stakeholders and community members up to date, Gilbert Schools has put together a Frequently Asked Questions document pertaining to the construction process and we will continue to add information to this document as needed.

Recently, Gilbert CSD received renderings of the new elementary building from CMBA Architects. This project will begin construction in the fall of 2024. Included in the renderings are the main entrance of the new elementary, images of what a typical classroom may look like, images of what a shared community space in one of the pods could look like, and a view of the backside of the building.

Building renderings were on display during parent-teacher conference the week of March 4, 2024.
