The bond program is the culmination of a two-year facility and infrastructure planning initiative to upgrade the district’s aging buildings to support learner-centered school communities as we build on our long-standing Tradition of Excellence and seek to open a World of Possibilities for and with each of our students, and in partnership with our families and community.
