CUYAHOGA FALLS -- Construction work is shaking things up at Woodridge Local Schools, according to Superintendent Walter Davis.

"Eric [Unangst, director of technology] tells me today here in the high school it was a little bit shaky," Davis said during the April 18 Board of Education meeting. "I mean that literally -- the building was shaking a little bit as they were digging here beside the school and moving dirt to prepare for the addition that's going in here at the high school."

Work is also progressing at the site of the new elementary school where the land has been cleared and graded, Davis said, adding progress can be viewed online through a web cam.

The new elementary school building is the primary component of a $33.5 million construction project funded by a 35-year, 3.71-mill bond issue approved by the voters in November 2015 to build a new primary and intermediate school facility on the district's Quick Road campus, replace the roof on the existing middle school, and add classroom space, as well as a new gymnasium at the existing high school.

Construction of the 124,000 square foot building is projected to be completed in time to open at the start of the 2018-19 school year (in August 2018), said Davis.
