  • The $108.2 million bond issue would address three key needs:

    Growth

    Maize USD 266 is running out of room in its five elementary and two middle schools and needs more space. Student enrollment has jumped 9 percent (600 students) in just five years.

    Safety

    Maize Schools must address safety concerns, including an outdated building access system, a storm shelter for Complete High School Maize, updated security cameras, and the ability to better secure classroom doors.

    Opportunity

    A bond issue would provide new opportunities for students, including safer playgrounds; labs to teach science, art, and technology in elementary schools; a district indoor pool; and a new auditorium for fine arts.
