What is Elder Grove running for in the mail ballot election?

Elder Grove is going for a $14.95 million bond to build a new middle school close to our current campus.

 

  • ​Cheapest option that the facility Planning Committee could come up with that met the community's goals (Community surveys and Spring community forum) and enrollment projections for the next 10 years.
  • 10 year projection is 1000 kids. Our current campus can not support that number. Billings and Laurel can not take all of our 7th and 8th grade kids.
  • Allows k-5 to have 4 classes each (current enrollment we need 4 classes for kindergarten and 1st grade but have no room).
  • Smaller class sizes
  • Room to start a preschool
  • Keeps our kids safe and at Elder Grove School
  • True Middle School Experience
  • Fewer lunch periods​
When Is the Election for the Bond

This is a mail ballot election, there will be no voting poll at the school. You must be registered to vote no later than November 13th. Ballots will be mailed out on Wednesday, November 22nd and your ballot will need to be in Yellowstone County Election Office by December 12th.

Can we send our 7th & 8th graders to Ben Steele or another independent district like Canyon Creek?
  • No! Billings School district #2 informed us that Ben Steele is over capacity and the west end is experiencing the same growth we are. They said chances are that they would break up our 7th & 8th graders and transport them to either Will James or Riverside. The parents would not have any say as to where their students will attend.
  • No! Canyon Creek does not have the capacity to house an additional 140 kids. This is half of their current enrollment.  The same is true for Elysian. Elysian does not have the room and they are also experience a lot of growth.
