Potential Bond Survey

Basehor-Linwood Community Members:

As a result of enrollment analysis conducted by RSP & Associates for USD 458 last year, the Basehor-Linwood School District is predicted to see amazing growth in the next few years! 

Key findings by RSP & Associates tell us:

  • This year’s 4th, 5th and 6th grades could be at 250+ (per class) by the time they hit high school (the 2027-2028 school year).

    • This means BLHS enrollment would potentially outgrow the building as it is currently

    • There will be a need for additional classrooms to be built for the 2027-2028 school year

  • Early Learning Center overcrowding is currently mitigated by controlled enrollment at this time, but there is a need for more pre-k classrooms in the community.

    • The ELC was built with the ability to add onto in its current space

The Basehor-Linwood Board of Education held work sessions in April, May and June of last year to outline goals for what the next bond might look like, and created a description of needs based on the projected enrollment growth.

  • The Board would like to stay on the current BLHS campus. 

  • There is potential for growth on the northwest side where the old baseball field was.

  • The Board has heard from BLHS students, staff and the community that we are a 5A school and our facilities should reflect that.

  • The Board would like to increase the number of Pre-K and child care classrooms at the Early Learning Center.

We, as BLHS Innovation Academy students, have been tasked with doing an informal survey to collect feedback from our staff, students, and community members to find out what changes are necessary to support our educational goals and to find out what the current needs of the community might be.
We ask that you fill out this survey with your honest opinions to help us collect the data needed to move forward with this potential bond issue:
The Basehor-Linwood Board of Education understands how important education is to the future of our community and our students, and is deeply committed to continuing to provide an excellent learning environment for our students. Thank you for your participation in our survey!
