November 2021 Bond

On November 3, Weld RE-4 School District residents voted to reject measures 4A (57.52% to 42.48%) and 4B (52.01% to 47.99%).*

The 2021 bond was always about asking for what our district needs to best serve our students. Growth in our communities is outpacing the capacity of our schools to serve students. In the next five years, Weld RE-4’s enrollment is expected to grow by nearly 1,900 students. With schools already at or over capacity, Weld RE-4 schools will lack the space to serve them.

With the rejection of issues 4A and 4B, we have a problem without a clear solution. However, we remain optimistic that our community will come together to create a solution to meeting aggressive enrollment demands now and in the immediate future.

What’s Next?

The district will begin meeting with stakeholders and the community to determine a path forward. Watch this page and our Facebook page for updates and ways to engage.

Growing Neighborhoods

Growth in student enrollment is aligned with new neighborhood developments in our communities. In 2020, the number of single-family home permits in Windsor, Severance, and West Greeley alone (1,400) rivaled that of those granted in Wellington, Loveland, Fort Collins, and Timnath combined (1,500).

Growing Enrollment

Enrollment for the 2021-2022 is over 8,200 students, which is an 800-student increase from the previous school year.

We anticipate 900 new elementary students between 2021 and 2024 and a near-term need to add capacity to serve 500 more middle school students.

Meeting the Need

We are not asking for investments in additional capacity that we are hoping to fill in the future. We are looking at investments that will serve students already in our Weld RE-4 communities to ensure we can continue to offer the high-quality educational experience that Weld RE-4 is known for, that our community expects, and that our students deserve.
