Why is a new Bond needed and what will it be used for?
Over the years, the Los Alamos Public Schools have enjoyed a reputation for academic achievement and recognition by numerous groups and publications for excellence. While the district actively strives to provide an atmosphere where students can succeed, its buildings continue to age and deteriorate. Research documents that in well-built, attractive environments, student behavior is more positive and achievement is higher.
Many of the school buildings are more than 50 years old with some approaching 60 years. Historically, in 1998, the school board and administration recognized the need to begin a Capital Improvement Plan. The plan proposed a bond, which raised taxes that year but promised no tax increase during the four-year life of the bond.
This program has been successful - providing new buildings at Mountain Elementary and Aspen Elementary schools, as well as the high school, and major remodeling at Aspen, the middle school, high school and Mountain.
Electrical upgrades at all schools have been done and many projects including replacing systems such as boilers and air conditioning, replacing thousands of square feet of aging concrete and providing greater ADA access at all campuses have been completed.
