As new housing tracts bring more students, Antelope Valley school districts are building new schools, planning others and thinking about asking voters to approve more taxes and bond issues. Antelope Valley Union High School District and Westside Union School District are contemplating putting bond measures before voters within the next two years, though none have made final decisions yet. Muroc Joint Unified School District has hired a financial consultant to study whether the district should pursue a bond measure. Voters in the high school district and Westside have previously passed tax measures, but those funds have been or will soon be exhausted by building other schools. The high school district is completing construction on the new Eastside High School, whose first class started in 2005 in temporary quarters, and has started planning for a ninth high school in southeast Palmdale. Lancaster School District has a middle school under construction, will break ground for an elementary school in late spring, and is in the planning stages for a second elementary school. Westside plans to start construction on an elementary school this year.
