If passed, what will the bond fund?

The bond measure would invest in the following projects at D51 high schools:

  • Central High School - Eliminate 16 non-secure doors, create a single entrance and connect all buildings so the entire campus is under one roof, perform asbestos abatement, add fire sprinklers, improve accessibility and traffic flow, and enlarge the cafeteria.

  • Fruita Monument High School - Have one entrance, connect all buildings on campus under one roof, and eliminate 27 non-secure doors; improve accessibility and circulation; and add 16 classrooms to bring ninth-grade back to Fruita Monument High School so that Fruita Middle School and Fruita 8/9 can each become full middle schools.

  • Grand Junction High School - Rebuild GJHS on the north side of the current campus and take down the current building, which has multiple non-secure doors, a sinking foundation, and multiple entrances and buildings.

  • Palisade High School - Add fire sprinklers, eliminate non-secure doors, connect all buildings under one roof, create collaborative spaces, add multi-disciplinary classrooms, and improve accessibility.
