Construction of New Schools 

More than 90% of the bond is dedicated to building additional schools and renovating existing facilities to accommodate increased student enrollment. This includes the construction of a ninth elementary school, fourth middle school, and a second comprehensive high school. Click the sections below for more information on each project.
 
Terra Vista Middle School is expected to reach capacity as early as 2023. To help address rapid growth across the district, Frenship will build a fourth middle school scheduled to open in the fall of 2023. This campus will be the first of the three new schools to open. 
 
Frenship secured the site for the fourth middle school in the spring of 2021. It will be located between Alcove Avenue and Upland Avenue along 60th Street.

As of June 2021, the site for the second high school is under contract and projected to be finalized later this year. The new school will be located in the area of 46th Street and Upland Avenue.

Re-purposing Current Facilities

The 2020 bond has two major re-purposing projects. With the construction of a second high school, the current Ninth Grade Center would no longer be used for high school students. The NGC will be re-purposed and serve as the Frenship Middle School. Right now, Frenship Middle School is currently housed in the oldest Frenship building still being used as an instructional facility. The projected timeline has FMS moving to the NGC in the fall of 2025.
 
As we see student enrollment steadily climbing, the number of staff members is also increasing. Once FMS students and staff are relocated, that building will be used for additional professional learning space and District offices. 
Right now, the FHS Ninth Grade Center is an extension of the main Frenship High School campus. NGC students share facilities at the high school such as the band hall, choir hall, and other athletic facilities. 
 
In the current Bond 2020 plans, the NGC will be re-purposed and serve as the Frenship Middle School. This would include $10 million for additions to the NGC to create a stand-alone middle school with facilities that are equitable to the other Frenship middle schools. Those additions include a fine arts wing with band and choir halls and athletic facilities such as a practice field and game day field designated specifically for the middle school.
