Facilities Master Plan


Pueblo City Schools is working to build a common understanding regarding the critical needs of our facilities as we work to develop a Facilities Master Plan for our school district. Development of this plan will take place over the next several months and community input will be gathered throughout the process. The final plan will incorporate the most forward-thinking ideas to ensure Pueblo City School's physical resources best support the needs of our students today and well into the future. The plan will address immediate action steps and the longer-range goals needed to ensure we are providing the best and safest learning environments possible to meet the needs of all students. 

This is important work that will require community engagement throughout. The public is encouraged to check this website frequently to stay informed as we continue our efforts to bring concepts and ideas to fruition.

At a special meeting held on July 30, 2019, the Board of Education unanimously decided to ask Pueblo School District 60 voters if they will approve a $218.25 million bond issue for schools. The measure will appear on the November 5th ballot.

Since September 2015, the Board of Education has been engaged in a Facilities Master Plan process, assessing the condition of district facilities, listening to the school community, and studying the recommendations of architects, construction professionals, and community stakeholders. After an extensive public engagement process, numerous community meetings, and several surveys of the needs and desires of district taxpayers and constituents, the Board is seeking the issuance of general obligation bonds to replace, repair and update school facilities. Should the bond pass, the District will establish a bond advisory committee to ensure transparency of all spending. 

The bond question that will appear on the ballot is as follows: 

SHALL PUEBLO SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 60 DEBT BE INCREASED $218.25 MILLION, WITH A REPAYMENT COST OF UP TO $359.5 MILLION, AND SHALL DISTRICT TAXES BE INCREASED BY UP TO $19.5 MILLION ANNUALLY FOR THE PURPOSE OF REPAIRING, IMPROVING, CONSTRUCTING, EQUIPPING AND OTHERWISE UPDATING SCHOOL FACILITIES WITHIN THE DISTRICT AS MONITORED BY A CITIZENS’ BOND ADVISORY COMMITTEE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:

  • ADDRESSING CRITICAL HEALTH, SAFETY AND SECURITY CONCERNS IN OTHER DISTRICT BUILDINGS, AND PROVIDING UPDATED SAFETY AND SECURITY SYSTEMS AND OTHER PRIORITY REPAIRS AND UPGRADES;
