The North County School District is set to show off $3 million in improvements made to the campus at an open house of sorts from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday.
District voters in 2006 approved a bond measure for the construction improvements by a single vote, needing a 55 percent majority. The work includes new portables, a new computer lab, an indoor eating area, renovated play fields and fencing. At the event Tuesday, there will be guest speakers, a ribbon cutting and refreshments as well.
North County, or Spring Grove School, serves much of rural northern San Benito County and a small portion of southern Santa Clara County.
Part of the upgrades also include a partnership between the district and San Benito County, which fronted $455,000 of the nearly $800,000 needed for the sports fields, said Don Kelley, chairman of the county parks and recreation commission, and also a North County School District resident.
“We’re just really trying to promote the efforts of the school and the parks commission and the county,” he said.
