USD 264 News

If you have read the local paper, you have probably caught wind that there will be a bond election in April of 2017. The funds from this bond issue will go to capital improvements around the district mainly focusing on safety and security. There is a lot of detail to the project, but some of the highlights would be secured entry points at all schools and storm shelters for Elementary West, the CIC and the Middle School. We will continue to share information about the proposal, details about the projects, and information about public meetings where you can learn more.
