District 6 Hosts VIP Tours Highlighting Bond Issue

Greeley-Evans School District 6 will host two informational VIP Tours highlighting schools that will be replaced or have significant repairs and renovations if the 2019 Bond Issue 4C passes in November.

 

The tours will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  September 26 and October 3. Both tours will start at Northridge High School. Participants will have a brief orientation and tour at Northridge, before boarding a school bus and traveling to McAuliffe STEM Academy, Greeley West High School, Chappelow Arts Magnet K-8 School and Madison Elementary School. The group will then return to Northridge High School.

 

“We believe it is important for the voters of Greeley and Evans to have a chance to see one of our newer schools, Northridge, and the sites that have significant needs that we are proposing to address with this bond issue,” said Superintendent Dr. Deirdre Pilch. “This is an important ballot measure for our communities and it is essential for voters to have the facts and see first-hand the conditions of these facilities so they can make an informed decision in November.”

 

Participants will be provided factual information about 4C, and will have a chance to ask questions at each stop and on the bus in between locations.

 

Greeley West High School and Madison Elementary School are proposed for a complete rebuild in the 4C Bond Issue. Both schools have significant structural issues and are greatly over capacity. McAuliffe STEM Academy K-8 and Chappelow Arts Magnet K-8 are also over capacity, and will receive significant additions if the bond issue is approved. Chappelow will also receive a new performing arts space. Every school in District 6 - including charter schools - will receive repairs, renovations and dollars for career and technical education spaces.

 

Refreshments and lunch will be served. Northridge High School has ample parking. Space on both VIP Tours is limited, so please sign up today.
