509J Issues RFPs for Madras High School & Warm Springs K-8 Bond Projects
The Jefferson County School District has launched into the first phase of bond projects to address improvements and upgrades to Madras High School and Warm Springs K-8 Academy.

The district has issued two Request for Proposals for projects identified at MHS and Warm Springs K-8 with the goal of selecting architectural firms by April. The design phases will begin in April 2022 with construction estimated to begin in early to mid 2023.
The following projects at Madras High School and Warm Springs K-8 will be addressed:
