Deming Public Schools is appreciative of the support from Luna County voters, and we hope you will vote for the bond election on Tuesday, February 4.
Why do you need new school buildings?
The state-mandated adequacy standards for school buildings have changed since Deming High School and Deming Intermediate School were built. The standards for security, room temperature, technology and handicap accessibility have changed significantly over the last 50 years.
Why can’t you remodel the current schools?
It would cost nearly as much to remodel as to replace the buildings, and with renovation we will be left with the structural deficiencies.
Will my taxes go up?
The bond election won’t raise the property tax rate portion used for schools, but the length of time needed to pay off bonds will be extended.
Why did the School Board choose that site for the new Intermediate School?
The School Board selected the location based upon several factors. One factor was an evaluation by a professional firm who evaluated 7 sites using the State’s recommended key attributes. Student safety, traffic patterns, and ease of construction are some of the key attributes.
Why are you renovating the old Smith School?
