Holdrege Public Schools Could See Consolidation

Posted: Updated:

Moving three into one could be the future plan for elementary facilities in Holdrege.

A roughly 14 million dollar bond would create a new primary school To be located on Broadway Street and 18th. Authorities say the current three elementary schools are not very efficient and are in serious need for renovations. The bond will include demolition of all three schools, and two of those areas would become housing. School officials say there are several reasons for a new building.

"We currently have instruction and assessment that is taking place our in hallways, portable outbuildings, storage closets, and loading docks. For those reasons, as well as student safety, [we need this new school]," shared Todd Hilyard, superintendent of Holdrege Public Schools. "The estimate showed that one elementary building in Holdrege would save approximately 360,000 dollars in Year 1."

Voting on the bond issue will take place May 14th at the Phelps County Fairgrounds.
