Park City schools considering options after $9.4M bond fails

Posted: Updated:
PARK CITY, Mont. -

Park City school's superintendent is re-evaluating what to do with overcrowding and the need for a new kitchen and gym.

Earlier this week a bond request for $9.4 million failed. Superintendent Dan Grabowska tells KULR-8 they split the bond: 60 percent for the elementary school and 40 percent for high school. He said the bond through the elementary school failed 486 to 297. He said on the high school side the bond failed 482 to 299.

Grabowska said the money would have been used to build a new school for fourth through sixth graders. It would also have been used to build a new kitchen and gym.

He said the bond would have cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $461 a year.

He said they will now start thinking about other ways to alleviate overcrowding. He said that could mean more modular classrooms which can cost any where from $150,000 to $160,000 for a double wide.
