Mapleton Public Schools 2016 Mill Levy (3A) and Bond (3B)

  • Thank you!


    In 2016, Mapleton voters said ‘YES’ to reinvesting and improving our community’s schools, and ‘YES’ to high-quality education for all Mapleton children!


    By 59 votes, Mapleton voters approved 3B, a $150 million bond measure that launched a multi-year capital construction campaign improving nearly every school building in the district.  The capital construction campaign follows the Facilities Master Plan. This plan was drafted by the District Facilities Task Force, a group of more than 100 stakeholders that met during the 2015-16 school year. The task force reviewed the current conditions of Mapleton’s buildings and explored opportunities to ensure the district is prepared to meet the present and future needs of the growing community.


    Thanks to YOU, Mapleton students and staff are benefiting from necessary safety and security upgrades, as well as much-needed renovations and rebuilds. This is a movement, not a moment, in Mapleton! Thank you for making this possible and supporting great education in your community!


    The $3 million mill levy (3A) override will affect all Mapleton students Yes 3A and 3B Logo

    Proceeds from the mill levy override will:

    • Enhance classroom materials and equipment
    • Create a high school career technology program
    • Help maintain both existing and new school buildings and grounds
    • Attract and retain highly-qualified staff to work with Mapleton students


    The $150 million bond (3B) will impact almost all Mapleton schools

    The bond proposal is a facilities reinvestment plan that will pay for replacements, renovations and/or repairs to nearly every school in Mapleton. Many of the District’s schools are more than 60 years old and in dire need of repair.  It will also fund the construction of new schools which are planned in the Midtown development and in the northern area of the District.
