The Bonneville School Board will bring a two-tiered school bond issue to voters in March of 2018.
The first tier is a 1,000 student core, middle school. It would include additional projects including a new roof at the Iona school, a parent loop at Falls Valley, plus land and money for architectural designs.
The second tier is an 850 student elementary school that includes modernized facilities for students with more severe disabilities. That facility would be located on district property north of the Red Rock subdivision. The second project is contingent on the first tier winning voter approval.
The total bond cost of both projects would be $60,267,840.
