The Kansas City, Kansas Community voted, with a 79% approval rate, to pass a Zero-Tax Increase Bond Referendum that will benefit each child in the Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools. This $235 Million bond will touch each school building and is another step toward graduating each student Diploma+.
Construction projects will largely be completed over a five year period and will include safety and security upgrades to all buildings, replacement of four outdated schools, the repurposing of two buildings, new playgrounds and kitchens for buildings that need them, and the completion of critical maintenance projects.
“We have built or renovated 14 facilities over the past seven years, using existing funds,” said Dr. Cynthia Lane, superintendent. “This bond will allow us to continue to make improvements to our facilities, in order to support our students in graduating high school prepared for college and careers. We are pleased that we can do this without raising taxes.”
