Projects & Timeline
SUMMARY OF INVESTMENTS
Our promise to you throughout this process was to be transparent about our request and good stewards of taxpayer dollars. We did not ask for more than what we needed to ensure we can continue to offer the same high-quality educational experience that Weld RE-4 is known for, that our community expects, and that our students deserve.
Increase School Capacity: Relocating Windsor Middle School to a 40-acre site in northwest Windsor (approx. 3 miles from the current location) and expanding Severance Middle School to serve 900 students each. Expanding Windsor Charter Academy.
New Schools to Serve PK-5 Students: Two new 600-student elementary schools located in the Peakview and Raindance neighborhoods.
Investments in Existing Assets: Renovations and site and systems improvements districtwide, as well as investments in increasing career and technical education (CTE) programming at Severance High School.
INCREASE SCHOOL CAPACITY
New Windsor Middle School
135,000 square feet
Expansion of Severance Middle SchoolAll projects planned when building was built in 2009
43,000 square foot addition
Expansion of Windsor Charter Academy
Provide additional learning spaces to expand educational programming
Additional Physical Education Facilities (indoor/outdoor)
Phased approach to be the anchor for future bond projects
NEW SCHOOLS TO SERVE
Two New Elementary Schools
Neighborhood Locations: Peakview & Raindance
Same footprint, similar building materials
73,500 square feet
Open concurrently for 2023-24 school year
The Peakview location would have decreased overcrowding at three schools: Grandview, Range View, and Mountain View/Tozer. It would have allowed us to serve Severance families currently in Grandview’s boundary, at Range View.
Due to the size of the Raindance development, we expected to open the school with significant enrollment. This location would have also accommodated enrollment from new housing developments on the western part of our district boundaries.
Locating elementary schools at Peakview and Raindance would have balanced enrollment at each of our K-5 campuses to an average of about 520 students each.
Weld RE-4's new elementary schools would be located in Peakview and Raindance.
