Bond 2015 will consist of four main projects:

  1. Safety & Security – Storm shelter at BES, access control doors throughout the District, security cameras and secure entrance features to District buildings.
  2. A Career and Technical Education addition to BLHS – increasing students’ capabilities to graduate high school with industry-recognized certificates.
  3. Technology improvements – network hardware, wireless access and a centralized phone system.
  4. Renovation to existing District facilities – improving pick-up/drop-off lanes, sidewalk accessibility, parking and energy efficiencies.

{Not included in this bond: auditorium at BLMS, stadium renovations, tennis courts and laptops/desktops.}

Bond 2015 is a $16 million bond  that restructures the District’s current bond debt, with no increase in the mill levy for residents.

The Basehor-Linwood School District has grown in the last eight years from 1,800 to nearly 2,200 students, as Basehor has led all of Leavenworth County in building permits with 87 in 2013 and over 100 in 2014. It is the District’s vision to continue to look ahead and plan appropriately for the growth of the Basehor-Linwood School District.
