Why are voters being asked to consider a Capital Improvement Bond?
Student enrollment projections show anticipated increases of more than 1,000 students in the next 10 years. If the bond measure passes, new schools and learning spaces are expected to balance current and future enrollment and provide students and staff with safe and efficient learning environments.
If passed what would the bond do?
