In August 2018, a fire in a storage area on the campus of Navajo Elementary School, 4525 N. Granite Reef Rd., forced students and staff to relocate to 7501 E. Oak St. In October 2018, the SUSD Governing Board decided to use insurance money to restore fire-damaged areas of the campus. At its regular board meeting on February 12, 2019, the SUSD Governing Board approved $4.26 million in bond funds for additional renovations to the campus.
The next community forum for the Navajo renovation project is August 22, 2019 at 3:30 pm. in the community room at 7501 E. Oak Street, Scottsdale. For details, call (480) 484-2600.

Since this project involves both insurance monies to restore only the fire-damaged areas and SUSD Bond monies to upgrade and update additional systems, there have been a series of actions taking place involving the community, parents, teachers, the school Principal as well as SUSD Facilities staff and representatives from the insurance trust.
