A district with heart... developing minds
This bond ensures students have the opportunity to learn in a safe, up-to-date environment, and preserve school facilities as long term assets.
Dayton is a growing community that values a strong educational system with a rural sense of caring and teamwork, and therefore has been supportive of their schools which have an enrollment of about 1,015 students. The buildings were built in 1936, 1950, 1969, and 2010. Bonds approved for infrastructure improvements in 1999 and 2009 increased capacity, which improved the educational offerings.
While District staff prioritize maintaining current facilities so that they are safe and productive learning environments, many structures are in need of significant repairs and maintenance that cannot be accomplished within the regular operating budget. The District will use the bond funds and grants to finance basic large-scale repairs, remove safety hazards, and make schools more energy efficient which will reduce facility operating expenses and allow more funds to be spent on education.
Info and updates
The Dayton community, which values a robust educational system, supported the Dayton School District with the passage of the Bond in 2019. Through the efforts of the District Facilities Committee and the School Board, 28 projects were prioritized that would reach across the Junior/Senior High School and the Grade School.
These 28 projects fulfilled the Bond promise and included the following:
- Remove, and dispose of asbestos; repair and replace damaged flooring, ceilings and roofs.
- Upgrade electrical, technology connectivity, plumbing, HVAC, and fire alarm systems.
- Replace inefficient windows insulation and lighting.
- Upgrade security, including reconfiguring offices and entryways to create a more secure school entry with fencing and gate card key access and cameras.
- Renovate, reconfigure, and can instruct additions to the library and classrooms.
- Replace Jr/Sr High Bleachers and track surface.
- Renovate special education classrooms providing ADA restrooms and access.
- Purchase furniture fixtures in equipment.
After the prioritized projects were completed in 2021, additional funds remained. In the summer of 2022, we proceeded with other critical upgrades identified by the district:
- High school roof replacement.
- Fire alarm, Door access control, and intrusion prevention upgrades at the grade school.
For the remaining funds, It was determined that a design and budget would be developed for an addition to the existing CTE building to expand the agriculture department. With the services of Carlson Veit Junge Architects and Triplett Wellman Contractors, a design was developed and published for bid in October 2022. Upon receipt of bids and development of total project costs, the proposal to move forward with the CTE building was presented to the Board on November 8, 2022, and was approved.
