Weld School District 6, Issue 4C
Several Greeley and Weld County schools look poised for expansions, as the county school district’s 4C ballot issue stands with a 52.08 percent majority in favor.
The school district covering most of Greeley is asking taxpayers to pay as much as $771 million and an extra $24.5 million annually for a sprawling school upgrade package. 4C includes building a new high school to replace the current Greeley West building, replacing Madison Elementary School and building an entirely new elementary school, along with various expansions, security updates and new technical education areas to existing schools.
