The West Fargo School Board unanimously approved the construction of the district’s next elementary school in the Deer Creek neighborhood. Deer Creek is a new neighborhood, planned for single-family homes on large lots. A large park featuring a pond is planned for the centerpiece of the neighborhood. Deer Creek is located on the western edge of the city, south of 52nd Avenue South. This will be the district's 15th elementary school.
The new elementary school will be funded from a portion of the 2015 bond referendum along with bonds that would be repaid using a portion of the Building Fund Levy.
