JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County School District #1 (TCSD) is inviting the public to provide feedback on proposed projects at Jackson Hole High School (JHHS) and other school district facilities during the Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 10 from 5-6 p.m.
The district is proposing projects that would address capacity issues at JHHS, including a new “Bronc Achievement Center”, improvements to the stadium and updates to the Bus Barn.
The proposed 81,420 square foot “Bronc Achievement Center” will be situated east of the tennis courts on the south side of JHHS and will provide additional space for several classrooms including Fabrication Lab, Robotics, Health, Wellness, PE, CNA/Training, Engineering, Culinary, and Media Arts. It will also include basketball courts, volleyball courts, soccer, an indoor track, space for wrestling, a climbing wall, weight room, and locker rooms.
The goal of the facility is to move space-intensive programs out of the high school to open up additional classroom space for the growing JHHS student population.
The district is also proposing moving the existing bleachers and press box from the east side of the McIntosh Stadium to the west side.
According to TCSD, when the bleachers were built, they were designed for a high school with approximately 400 students. Currently, the high school has more than double that for enrollment. This would also change the orientation of the site where home spectators would enter on the east side of the field and have access to parking at other schools nearby. Visitors and bus drop off would be in the current parking area for visitors.
Another project proposes combining the bus barn and maintenance facility which would open up the current maintenance facility for middle school career tech education programming down the line.
According to TCSD, the district is also are currently working with a consultant to identify the number, types, and locations where the district could construct employee housing units.
