School Facilities Oversight Board tours Queen Creek school district

Posted

Members of the School Facilities Oversight Board visited the Queen Creek Unified School District (QCUSD) on Wednesday Aug. 3 to learn about the growth in the community and the school district.

The members were taken on a bus tour where they learned about how district enrollment has grown 148% in the last 10 years and is now one of the fastest-growing locations in the country, a press release stated.

“This was a good opportunity to show people that might not be familiar with QCUSD what our needs are firsthand,” stated Jim Lamb, QCUSD executive director of operations and construction, in the release. “The members of the [board] are not from the QC area. Some are even from outside of the valley. Unless you see the growth firsthand, you might not believe it is actually real.”

The board is a state agency that provides oversight and funding for school facilities. The board has helped fund the construction and purchase of land for Eastmark High, Silver Valley Elementary and Crismon High, which opened July 27.
