To accommodate rapidly growing enrollment, update aging facilities and provide storm shelters for students, the Maize School District approved a $70.7 million dollar bond issue in 2015. Projects are set to be completed by late 2018.

To serve the district’s youngest learners, the district will build a new 32,000 square foot standalone early childhood center.

Maize Middle School will expand to allow space for future growth of up to 900 students.

Maize South High School will get an expanded commons/cafeteria space as well as special education and fine arts additions.

Maize High School will receive a new multipurpose room, storm shelter space, and renovated welding space. The district is adding a new 37,000 square foot career and professional center that will offer students opportunities to explore professions including health sciences, culinary arts, and broadcasting. Athletic facility upgrades will include new athletic entries, turf, locker rooms, lighting and bleacher upgrades. A new district transportation facility will allow for the consolidation of bus and ground maintenance teams in one building, as well as providing new office space and training rooms for transportation staff and drivers.

“I have felt as if they are a part of our staff, equally committed to our district mission and doing what’s best for our students.”
