High School Bond Update

The Board of Trustees held a four-hour work session on Friday, January 12th to discuss the issue of how to upgrade and modernize Idaho Falls and Skyline high schools. 

During the meeting, board members discussed:

  • Ideas for reducing the scope and cost of the $110 million bond, which would have paid for a top-to-bottom renovation of Skyline High School and to build a brand new Idaho Falls High School.
  • Reducing the number of classrooms at the new IFHS, reducing the size of the commons areas and auditoriums at both high schools and making other design changes.
  • The idea of proposing a bond to pay for the basics at both high schools, and then giving patrons the option to vote on amenities such as auditoriums, an auxiliary gym and other athletic facilities.
  • Other facility needs in the district, including a centralized location for career-technical programs and new elementary school sites.
  • Moving forward with a new transportation center near Ethel Boyes Elementary School and Eagle Rock Middle School that will allow the district to consolidate transportation services.
  • Possible election dates, including May and August.

In the next few weeks, we will reconvene the design committees from both high schools to get their input regarding the ideas for reducing bond scope. In addition, we are continuing to gather feedback from parents, patrons and staff. We will provide more updates as that work progresses.
