School Bond Issue Approved

Well, it happened!  The school bond issue needed 60% approval and managed to obtain 66% of the 780 votes cast on Tuesday.  The “Yes” vote for Sargent Central will provide funds to:

  • Replace the sewer system
  • Replace modulars with ten classrooms plus a Kindergarten center
  • Convert existing locker rooms into Interactive Television Classroom (ITV) facilities and provide a larger counselor office, a commons area and storage
  • Provide a library/computerized research center open to the public
  • Improve safety so all areas can be notified at once of fire, tornado or lockdown situations (rather than having to telephone or walk to inform some classrooms!)
  • Meet ADA and Fire Marshall code compliance and Health and Safety codes
  • Connect the existing facility to the Activity Center
  • Provide for future student population growth

Thank you to everyone who worked to help make the bond issue pass.  Your hard work paid off!
