Lindbergh Schools administrators and Board of Education members will join Lindbergh High School students and staff on Friday to break ground on a state-of-the-art new Lindbergh High School that will provide flexible learning opportunities for generations of future students. The ceremony is not open to the public. Look for full coverage by The Call after the event.  

Lindbergh voters overwhelmingly approved Prop R, a $105 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue to revitalize the Lindbergh High School campus and create districtwide safety equity in April 2019. More than 77 percent of voters cast ballots in favor of Prop R, which as a bond issue required 57.15 percent for approval.

The Lindbergh Board of Education voted 6-0 on June 30 to move forward with the second phase of the three-phase Lindbergh High School construction project. The project includes new construction that will connect existing facilities, extensive renovations of existing facilities and abatement across the campus.

Four prequalified general contractors responded, and BSI Constructors Inc. was the lowest responsible bidder that submitted a bid in accordance with the specifications furnished by the district, in the amount of $65,747,000. 

LHS construction is taking place in three phases. Phase 2 will include construction of a new three-story structure that will connect existing buildings on the high school campus, in addition to renovation and remodeling work in existing buildings. Phase 2 work is scheduled for completion in January 2023. 

Phase 1 began in summer 2020 and includes construction of a Central Utility Building, demolition of the Math Building and high school main office, installation of utilities, additional exterior site improvements and asbestos abatement.  Phase 3 is scheduled to begin in January 2023 and will include demolition of the current auditorium and 300s/400s building, and resurfacing and reconfiguration of on-campus parking areas.
