01 Project Overview
After failing a bond issue for a new K-12 school, Covington school leaders brought in Fanning Howey to get a fresh take on their pre-bond program.

The Fanning Howey Pre-Bond team helped Covington reengage the community in a series of visioning sessions that revealed a new direction. The new master plan proposed a K-8 school addition next to the existing high school. This option dramatically lowered the financial impact of the project – a must for the cost-conscious community. Less than a year after partnering with Fanning Howey, Covington passed its bond issue, and the district now the facilities they need to succeed in the future.
