Hohokam Modernization Project

Project Overview

At its regular board meeting on April 16, 2019, the SUSD Governing Board voted unanimously to redevelop Hohokam Elementary School.  Whether that means a complete rebuild, renovations or some combination of the two has not yet been decided.

A series of Community Forum meetings currently underway will help determine the project's goals.
