2019 Bond Information


Superintendent Hamm and USD 373 Communications Director Sam Anderson walk through the 2019 proposed bond scope.

The upcoming bond is made up of two questions that will help prepare USD 373 for the future.

The first question ($61,320,000):

  • An update to Newton High School, including:
    • Safety and security upgrades
    • A science wing addition
    • A remodel of the auditorium and district kitchen
    • A new storm shelter/gym
    • Remodel of classrooms
  • Safety and security at Chisholm Middle School and Santa Fe 5/6 Center
  • Safety and security at the elementary schools
  • Santa Fe and Chisholm deferred maintenance
  • Deferred maintenance at all elementary schools

The second question ($24,420,000) is for a new school south of town. It would be a kindergarten through sixth-grade building.  The building will have three sections so there is room for growth.
