The bond issue would raise $395 million for the replacement of two schools, including Greeley West, a new K-8 school, renovations to two K-8 schools to address overcrowding, learning spaces for career and technical education and repairs. A facility needs study identified $1 billion in building needs, repairs, renovations and additional classrooms to accommodate growth.The issue will be on the Nov. 5 ballot.
