Why was a high school on Mines Road not included in this bond referendum?

Enrollment projections for the next five years indicate that United High School’s student enrollment will be at 4,380. United High School has capacity for this enrollment. In addition, United High School does not have any portable classrooms or teachers who float into classes. These alternatives can still be accommodated at United High School. Furthermore, our planning department has looked at the feasibility of constructing a high school on Mines Road and has determined that the student enrollment preliminarily projected to attend this new school would be small. Projections indicate that a high school can be supported within the next 8 years.
