New schools and facility improvements will accommodate growing student population
PSD voters approved a $375 million bond to build three new schools — a new middle/high school in Wellington, and an elementary and middle/high school east of I-25 — as well as an athletic complex, transportation facility renovation, and addition to Zach Elementary School.
The bond will also fund $40 million of improvements to every existing school. The $8 million mill levy override will pay for operating costs of the new buildings. However, due to pending litigation, PSD is currently unable to issue bonds and start new construction projects. Visit 2016 Bond and Mill web page for more details.
As a result, new timelines for construction of the new facilities have been revised.
