Looking to the future of Shelby Public Schools, the Board of Education is asking the community to consider a bond proposal at the Tuesday, May 4, 2021 election, for district-wide improvements to address identified and ongoing building, facility, and site issues. If approved, this bond proposal would generate $33,000,000 for district-wide improvements.

Key Projects Include:

  • Constructing a new Elementary School for all students Grades Kindergarten - Fifth

  • Thomas Read and New Era transition to Early Childhood and community resources

  • Renovations to the Middle School

  • Renovations to the High School

The district currently operates four school buildings that range in age from 24 to 66 years old, the newest building being the High School, constructed in 1997. Although these buildings have undergone improvements over the years, none of our schools have seen significant upgrades in over 20 years, since the last bond projects were completed. A recent facilities assessment identified specific systems that have exceeded their expected lifecycles – roofing, flooring, etc. If the bond proposal is approved, it would include replacement of the identified systems.
