Project Overview


The Swallow School District has been Inspiring Excellence since the doors to the first schoolhouse opened in 1844. In response to the feedback received from the Community Survey, the School Board has approved a resolution for an $8.3M referendum that will appear on the general election ballot on November 6. The proposed referendum will result in a zero tax increase for district taxpayers due to the early retirement of debt. While the referendum plan is a reduced version of the surveyed plan,   it includes the most vital improvements for teaching and learning and the most pressing maintenance needs while also being responsive to the community’s feedback to have no tax increase. The referendum plan still creates the educational spaces the staff, students, and community need to improve programmatic offerings and instructional experiences to build on the success past students have been achieving for generations.

Swallow School began in 1844 across County Road E.  After two fires, the third school building was erected here on present-day Swallow School property in 1894.  Beginning in 1953 and spanning 50 years, 5 additions were made to the building.  Follow THIS link to see the Building History timeline.
