2018 STORY: Much work to do before trying school bond again
The school district hopes to build three new elementary schools to house preschool through fourth grade and one new elementary/middle school to house grades 5-6. The seven current elementary schools — Concord, Cookson, Forest, Heywood, Hook, Kyle and Van Cleve — would be demolished, according to the plan.
Two years ago, Troy voters soundly rejected a bond issue that would have paid for construction of two new schools and upgrades to the high school.
Last year, school board President Doug Trostle said of the need to replace aging school buildings, “This is real. It is urgent. We need to address it.”
