Kids at Killian and Yorbita schools will return to newly remodeled classrooms on Aug. 20. Rowland Unified School District spent more than $3 million to renovate the two campuses in Rowland Heights and La Puente.

"The students will find new classrooms that are much quieter and energy efficient," Assistant Superintendent Ruben Frutos said.

The renovations are the latest projects finished under the district's $118 million construction bond passed in 2006.

The two projects came in 50 percent under the architect's estimate of $6 million.

"We were very fortunate that the construction bids came in much lower than expected," Frutos said. "We're anticipating savings of more than $20 million from the bond that we'll be using on future projects."
