On Tuesday, Dec. 10, the Board unanimously and enthusiastically voted to accept BEST program funding from the Colorado Department of Education to support the rebuild of the Valley View school building.
Mapleton submitted a BEST grant to help support Valley View’s rebuild last February. In May, the district was recommended as a back-up candidate for BEST grant funding. In November, Mapleton received the good news that the state would have the ability to fund the Valley View PK-8 project.
The BEST grant portion of the project will be $17,414,793.86. Design meetings for the ‘New View’ will begin soon! Stay tuned for additional information.
