Ballots are due Tuesday, Feb. 26, for residents of the Belgrade School District to approve a $48 million bond to buy land, build schools and upgrade current schools.
The bond will do the following:
• The first is to buy 18.9 acres along Bohlinger Road across from three large developments in the works to build a 60,000-square foot elementary school that will replace Heck-Quaw Elementary School.
• The second is to buy about 40 acres somewhere south of Interstate 90 for a future elementary school and middle school. The district is currently talking to a few landowners in the area for the future schools, but nothing is on hand for voters to see.
• The third will be to upgrade Martha Heck Elementary School for district needs.
• The fourth is to build a commons area onto Saddle Peak Elementary School.
