District 1 makes pitch for bond
It comes down to enrollment.
Williston Public School District No. 1 had about 3,000 students in 2014, when the last bond referendum passed. That paid for the new high school, which opened in fall 2016.
Since then, enrollment growth has been faster than projected, even as the oil boom cooled and population growth slowed.
“We’re still seeing pretty substantial growth within the district itself,” Nick Lippert with JLG Architects said at a public forum Wednesday evening.
How substantial? Enrollment for this year is about 4,100 students.
