With a growing student population and school facilities reaching capacity, Harvard District 50 will hold building open houses in early November to discuss the imminent needs of the community.
All five Harvard CUSD 50 school buildings will hold open houses for community members to tour facilities. Each open house will last an hour with a thirty-minute tour followed by a thirty-minute discussion. Alison Andrews and John Maurer from Wold Architects and Engineers will attend.
If you can’t make one of our open houses or have additional thoughts and comments, you can share your ideas and information through the discussion form.

Superintendent Dr. Corey Tafoya said that the board has been examining facilities closely over the last year.
“We know enrollment is growing, and we must determine how to allocate space and design for 21st-century learning for our students,” Tafoya said. “The open houses are an opportunity for families and the community to discuss the future of our facilities.”
The district performed a Kasarda study and a facility utilization and capacity study to gauge population growth and the capabilities of our buildings. Both documents are available below.
