  • Board of Education Intent to Pursue Bond in the upcoming fall election

    During D38's February monthly board meeting, the board made a resolution stating their intent to pursue a bond in the 2019 November Election. The Board recognizes the urgent need to address current enrollment and future growth, which prompted the decision to pursue a cost-effective bond to build a single elementary school. If the bond passes, D38 will then convert Bear Creek Elementary School back to Creekside Middle School using district reserve funds.

    The Board understands the community rejected a bond for many reasons, which have been taken into account. The Board will ensure clear and specific bond language stating the bond funds will be spent only on a single new school; any additional costs will be paid for by D38.
