2022 Bond for QCUSD

Queen Creek Unified School District is one of the fastest-growing in Arizona. Enrollment has grown 80% from 2016–2021, and we expect to grow another 31% in the next five years.

The district is asking voters to consider a bond of 198 million dollars for projects over the next five years to help fund construction of new schools, expansions to existing schools, upgrades to facilities, security features, new buses, and other improvements to address the rapid growth of Queen Creek’s population.

Enrollment numbers

The Need

As the community grows, so do the number of families choosing QCUSD schools. Schools are not only used for those with students in the district, but also for community events such as sports league games, faith-based events, HOA meetings, scout meetings, Kiwanis clubs, vendor shows, dance recitals, and more.

The Plan

With bond approval, QCUSD will build two new elementary schools to relieve overcrowding in current schools. Expansions and renovations are also planned to upgrade facilities and complete current construction plans for newer schools. Additional buses, security upgrades, and upgrades to athletic facilities are also planned to prioritize students safety and enrichment.
