Fernan STEM Academy

  • Completed parking lot, bus lop project at Fernan

    Project completed

    Long-anticipated improvements to the Fernan STEM Academy parking lot, parent drop-off lane and bus loop were completed during summer 2018. The work was done by Buddy's Backhoe Service, which submitted the low bid of $290,000.

    Funds for the project were provided from the $35.5 million bond measure approved by voters in March 2017. Students now have a much safer area for traffic flow and parking in front of their school.
