Laramie County School District #1 Superintendent Mark Stock says the district is waiting for a decision from the state on a proposal to build six new 5th-6th grade schools to help deal with overcrowding, especially at the k-3 grade levels.

An architect group hired by the state made that recommendation, and district trustees voted 7-0 earlier this year to support it. Stock says the next step is to get approval from the state School Facilities Commission. Stock says that group had been slated to discuss the issue this week, but instead it’s meeting was postponed by bad weather

. He says it’s now unclear when the commission will tackle the issue.  Stock says if the commission approves then the district will have to wait for the state legislature to appropriate money for planning and design of new schools.

He says if all goes well the district could be opening the new schools in roughly two years, with two schools scheduled to be built in each of the district’s triads.
