Background

After months of community conversations and door-to-door canvassing regarding facility needs, the Deer Park Community City School District bond levy passed in November 2016. The $25 million bond issue will renovate and place an addition onto Amity Elementary, making it a 21st Century K-6 building. The school will remain open during the duration of the project.

The project will include:

  • Classroom renovations,
  • ADA compliant entrances and elevators,
  • A new gym and stage; and,
  • A new and safe front entrance on the side of the school.

The District plans to repurpose the existing Holmes Elementary building for use of the Board of Education office, the preschool, and the Head Start program. The Howard Building, currently the Board of Education Office, is slated to close.
