Capital Improvements (Bond / SB9)

Boy with thumbs up sign

Promises Kept!

Since the district was founded in 1994, through eight bond elections voters have entrusted Rio Rancho Public Schools with $358 million in property tax revenue for school construction and renovation, as well as up to $4.5 million annually for school maintenance and technology generated by the two-mill capital improvements levy.  With that trust comes an obligation on the part of the school district to complete the projects it promised the voters who approved the issuance of the bonds. 

RRPS takes this obligation seriously. 

In the past 25 years, RRPS has built or purchased buildings for fourteen school campuses (including all four high schools) to meet the needs of a rapidly-growing community.  Two additional campuses are under construction.  The district has completed hundreds of projects at its schools, including classroom and support facility additions, roofing, heating and cooling improvements, technology infrastructure, facilities for athletics and fine arts, and more. 

Click on the links in the column at right to view lists of completed projects from previous bond issues and the status of projects promised in the most recent bond elections.  Keep in mind that when bond elections are approved, the money becomes available over a period of years, rather than immediately after the passage of the bond issue.   Therefore, some projects from the most recent bond issues are still in progress.  

Thank you to the citizens of Rio Rancho for your trust and support.
