D6 Career and Technical Education Center & Jefferson High School
Demolition will begin this summer on the former Colorado Department of Transportation building at the corner of 14th Avenue and 2nd Street to make way for the new Jefferson High School and Career and Technical Education Center. The garage located on the site will be preserved and remodeled to house three CTE programs.
The Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee approved using proceeds from the first sale of the 2019 bonds to fund the new school and center. The 52,500-square-foot building will cost an estimated $22 million to construct.
Five Career and Technical Education programs will be included in the new CTE Center, which includes part of the Jefferson High School wing of the building. The programs are: Early Childhood Education, Construction, including an electrical pathway, Welding, Information Technology with an emphasis on cybersecurity and Cosmetology. Jefferson will also continue CTE programs in Business/Marketing and Alternative Cooperative Education.
This project is slated to be completed in August of 2023.
The former Jefferson High School will convert to Jefferson Junior High School, and will also house the Transitions, SWAP, Audiology and Child Find programs.
The Success Foundation Serving Greeley-Evans School is conducting a campaign to raise funds for equipment for the new CTE Center. To donate to this project, visit: www.d6successfoundation.org.
