The process Pueblo City Schools (D60) has used to gather public input on its capital improvements needs is drawing to a close. At its July 30 meeting, the school board is expected to vote on a bond measure intended to finance new construction and improvements at various schools throughout the district.
Although things could change, it appears likely that the board will ask voters to approve a $218 million bond issue this November. If approved, that amount of money would finance construction of two new buildings to replace Centennial and East high schools. The existing buildings housing those two schools would be demolished.
The bond issue also would fund improvements at South and Central high schools, as well as nine other middle or elementary schools.
