PARADISE, Calif. - The Paradise Unified School District will see a number of face-lifts over the next few years.

The $135-million plan is split up into two phases.

The first phase plans to improve all the schools in the district include painting, fencing, installing new playgrounds building new facilities at the high school and more.

The money for that comes from insurance proceeds and modernization funds and a bond passed in the early 2000s. Officials say phase one should take about three years.

One of the big projects that Superintendent Tom Taylor describes is the construction of a new gym at the high school that's been on hold for 20 years.

Phase two is to modernize facilities and classrooms at all of the schools and the completion of the high school rebuild processes including a stadium remodel. A $61-million bond passed two days before the Camp Fire will pay for those projects.

Assistant Superintendent David McCready said as the community comes back with tax-based bills, they will be able to start accessing those funds.

All district sites will be improved in some way.

Aside from the haze and smoke, we've had beautiful weather in northern California today, and it will be just as nice tomorrow. A storm is coming our way, however, and we'll have very unsettled weather this weekend.
