New elementary school

Proceeds from the proposed bond package are anticipated to create a new elementary school in District 3 to replace Stone Elementary and serve as a relief for Hotchkiss.

New classrooms

Proceeds from the proposed bond package are currently intended to create new classrooms at the following District 3 schools:

  • 12 classrooms at Bryan Adams High School
  • 24 classrooms at Alex Sanger Elementary/Middle School
  • 10 classrooms at Victor Hexter Elementary
  • 10 classrooms at Highland Meadows
  • 12 classrooms at S.S. Conner Elementary

Expanded Career and Technology Program at Conrad High School

Proceeds from the proposed bond package are anticipated to create an expanded career technology education (CTE) program at Emmett J. Conrad High School.

Examples of CTE programs are:

  • Culinary arts
  • Information technology
  • Health sciences
  • Hospitality/tourism

If the CTE program is expanded at Conrad, the district would work with the community to determine which CTE program would work best.

Facility improvements
