After many meetings with construction companies, and input from our community, the Jerome School District Board of Trustees voted to proceed with a new school bond, referred to as the Jerome Completion Bond, to complete the projects previously designed to be done with the 2021 Community Schools Jerome School District Bond.
After much input and consideration, the Jerome Completion Bond includes a much more comprehensive remodel of Jefferson Elementary School, the district's oldest current school.
Passage of this bond would move Jefferson Elementary over to the New School building upon completion, so that construction could be done inside of Jefferson without students present. This will mean less cost and shorter construction times. It will however, delay the K-6 model elementary schools back to the 24-25 school year.
