With continued student population growth and our schools exceeding capacity, we look to our community for support in ensuring we continue to offer high-quality educational experiences for our students.

Over the past few months, the Bond Steering Committee — a group of volunteers from across our community — worked to develop a potential bond package that addresses our students’ learning environment needs. The committee first developed four preliminary packages for community input at meetings across the district and online. Taking this feedback into consideration, the Bond Steering Committee recommends:

  • Two new elementary schools to be built in the Peakview and RainDance neighborhoods, adding 1,200 additional seats at our elementary school level and balancing enrollment at all existing elementary schools

  • A new 1,200-student middle school to be constructed on north 15th Street. It is the recommendation of the committee that the existing Windsor Middle School be used as a middle school until it can be repurposed for future district use

  • An addition on Severance Middle School, adding 300 additional seats and a second gym

  • An addition on Severance High School, adding 476 additional seats

  • A new Career and Technical Education Center at Severance High School, which will provide welding, vocational ag, and culinary education programs

  • An expansion at Windsor Charter Academy to include a gymnasium and classrooms

  • Repair and replacements at schools across the district to extend the buildings’ life, reduce energy costs, and upgrade security and safety items

For detailed information on each project, associated costs, and tax impact, visit our 2022 bond website.

This recommendation will be presented to the Board at its June 20 work session. We look to gather feedback on the proposed bond package to help inform the Board’s decision to pursue a ballot measure this fall. This feedback will be gathered through a statistically significant survey of registered voters in the district next week. It will be sent via text, as well as through our district email, website, and social media pages.
