The Tointon Academy of Pre-Engineering Bond Project

      • Greeley-Evans School District 6 is developing a design for a new Preschool through 8th grade school to accommodate approximately 900 students. The school will be located near the Boomerang Golf Course at the intersection of 71st Avenue and 4th Street. District 6 negotiated with Banner Health for the purchase of the property, which included trading property with Banner Health that the District owned near Promontory. 

         

        The Design Advisory Groups for this new school has been meeting since April, and the preliminary design of the school is completed. A request for bids for construction of the new school will go out in November.

         

        Pre-engineering will be the focus of the new school. Classes and curriculum will include the basic principles of engineering, and students will have the opportunity to explore careers in engineering-related fields. District 6 is hoping to partner with a Colorado university to provide support for the engineering focus. The district will work to attract students to this school who are underrepresented in the field of engineering, including students of color and female students.

         

        On October 26, the Board of Education voted unanimously to name this school the Tointon Academy of Pre-Engineering after Bob and Betty Tointon. A naming committee met four times to whittle down 70 suggested names submitted through a community survey. Bob and Betty Tointon have been strong supporters of public education in District 6. Please see the article below on the naming.

         

        The cost of construction, land acquisition and preparation, and furnishing the new school is estimated at $60 million. Roche Constructors, whose corporate offices are located across the street from the new school site, was awarded the contract for construction o fthis new school in early November. 

         

        This new school is slated to open in the Fall of 2022.
