A district with heart... developing minds

Bond program

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.

ZCS Engineering is processing the Seismic Upgrade application, which will be due in January.
The application is the District’s opportunity to sell the project to the grant committee. Locations that serve the local community, locations with historical value, and locations that have other uses (shelter, etc.) all receive more attention. This component can really be valuable during the review process and ZCS encourages detailed dialogue with respect to the importance of the building in the community.
 
Additionally, another item the District is contributing that will strengthen their application is the inclusion of letter(s) of support from community members. ZCS feels that acknowledging the awareness of the facilities deficiencies and the benefits of seismic retrofit will strengthen the chances of being awarded a grant. They anticipate that this round there will be 2x-3x as many applications as there is money available.
