At last night’s board meeting the Board of Education approved moving forward with developing a plan, community engagement and developing the scope of work for a Phase II bond. The purpose of a Phase 2 Bond Issue will be to address capital improvements, additions and renovations in designated existing facilities as well as educational specifications, planning and construction of new facilities, including two elementary schools, one middle school, and two high schools. The estimated total cost for Phase 2 is approximately $399.8 million.
The next steps include developing details for the scope of work, developing a timeline and determining costs. The deadline to pursue a potential ballot initiative for May 2018 is in March. Placing the bond on the ballot would require a separate vote from the Board.
