Enrollment-based, long range facilities plan logoAfter our no-tax-increase bond issue passed with 84 percent of the vote, many people had the same question – “now what?”

You can find the latest updates about the bond projects on this page, so check back often.

Elementary School and Facility for High-School Students

We purchased almost 272 acres of land at 68th Street and Waukomis Drive, on the eastern edge of our district, for $3 million. This purchase is a result of the long-range, enrollment-based facilities plan the Board developed with input from staff, students, parents and community members.

As called for in our long-range plan, our new site will house our next elementary school and a facility for our high-school students. The elementary will open in 2019, and the LEAD Innovation Studio, which is opening this fall in a leased office space, will move to the new high-school facility no sooner than 2020.

The size of this land and the designs for the high-school facility will allow us to build onto it to make a full high school at this location if we have enough enrollment growth in the future.

We will have a neighborhood information meeting for people who live near the site of the new elementary school. That meeting is at 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 4, at Chinn Elementary.
