American Falls School District seeks input on bond

The American Falls School Board is planning to pursue another bond issue and would like as much citizen input as possible from the district patrons according to Board Chairman Bruce Hauber. The election would likely be in May.

As part of the process school district leaders are seeking community input by forming a Citizen Input Committee.

School Board President Bruce Hauber said the need for facility improvements exists despite the bond not passing last November.

“We are currently experiencing a drastic increase in the number of students attending our schools, especially in our elementary grades. Even though the bond failed to gather the needed super-majority in the last election the need to have quality facilities for these students remains,” Hauber said.

The November bond was for $10.4 million and would add six new classrooms, a computer lab and upgraded lunch room and library facilities to the Intermediate School, along with a new multi-use gym facility at AFHS.

According to Hauber the plan is about improving current resources as a way to prepare for the future.
