At its regular board meeting on April 16, 2019, the SUSD Governing Board voted unanimously to redevelop Hohokam Elementary School. On August 20, 2019, the Governing Board decided to proceed with an adaptive re-use of Ralph Haver-designed buildings on campus, as well as constructing several new, single-story buildings to accommodate Hohokam students and their activities for many years to come.
A series of Community Forum meetings is still underway to keep the Hohokam community and neighbors informed about the project.
