More than 90% of the proposed bond is dedicated to building additional schools and renovating existing facilities to accommodate increased student enrollment. 
 
Based on demographic studies, Frenship High School is expected to reach capacity in 2023. This proposed bond would include the construction of a second high school that would serve 2,500 students. If the bond passes, the second high school would be scheduled to open in the Fall of 2024. 
 
With student growth across the board, the proposed bond would also include the construction of a fourth middle school slated to open in the Fall of 2023 and a ninth elementary school projected to open in the Fall of 2025. 
 
 
The proposed 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 would 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 would have FMS moving to the NGC in the Fall of 2024.
 
As we see student enrollment steadily climbing, the number of staff members is also increasing. Once FMS is relocated, that building would be used for additional professional learning space and District offices.
