About the Bond
It has been nearly 10 years since the passage of the last bond measure in the Crook County School District. In that time, the number of students in our classrooms has increased, safety and security concerns have changed, and basic systems like electrical, heating, plumbing and roofs are aging and do not function as designed in some schools. In addition, our district is making targeted investments to ensure our students have expanded hands-on learning opportunities that meet our community's needs.
In 2021, the Crook County School District partnered with parents, community members, district leadership and industry experts to craft a Long Range Facilities Plan. This plan assessed the District’s facilities needs based on building condition assessments, educational adequacy assessments, and capacity analyses. It also provides a capital improvement plan for addressing building condition deficiencies, as well as educational program changes, and enrollment growth.
After the completion of the Long Range Facilities Plan, the citizen-led Long Range Facilities Planning Committee collaborated with leadership and architectural experts to form a $66 million bond package to:
Address Health and Safety Needs
Repair & Update Aging School Buildings
Expand Hands On Learning, Student Opportunities
Relieve Crowded Classrooms, Plan for the Future
