It’s Time Because …
Bartlett students deserve the best
Bartlett City Schools have received the highest possible marks on the state’s report card, and our high school graduates earned $17 million in scholarships last year.
BHS is a Century Old
Parts of the campus are 100 years old, and the last major renovation was 40 years ago. There is a tremendous need to modernize the safety, accessibility and functionality at Bartlett High School.
Bartlett City Schools is Fiscally Responsible
The district has operated under budget every year since its creation in 2013. The decision to renovate rather than build a new school represents a savings of millions to the taxpayers.
The cost of doing nothing is too high.
By 2019 portables will be needed to accommodate our growing student population. In addition, deferred maintenance costs on the existing buildings already exceed $70 million.
