Voters Approve the 2018 Bond Referendum
We’re pleased to share the results of the School Bond Special Election that took place Tuesday, February 6, 2018:
- 1,663 = YES
- 625 = No
A majority of district residents, 72.68%, voted to pass the bond referendum that will provide funds to build two new four-section elementary schools on the current Olmsted and Valerius sites, build an addition to Webster Elementary or UHS as needed for future enrollment growth, and accelerate the timeline for building a new high school fitness center. The plan was developed based on feedback from students, parents, teachers, staff, and community members who participated in online surveys and numerous facility planning meetings. The plan optimizes school resources, creates equity throughout the district, enhances technology and security, and provides greater 21st century spaces and learning opportunities for all K-12 students. We will continue communicating updates and requesting your feedback throughout the planning, designing, and construction phases.
