Greater Albany voters approved Measure 22-165 in the May 16 election with a passing rate of 54 percent.
“We want to thank our community for its support of our schools,” said Superintendent Jim Golden. “This measure will make a difference to kids and to our whole community.”
The bond will:
- Fix aging school buildings
- Make energy improvements
- Make school safety and security improvements
- Add/expand vocational and technical classrooms at all middle and high schools
- Relieve overcrowding and accommodate growth
The planning process will begin immediately. A project timeline and plan will be announced in the coming weeks and will include opportunities for community involvement.
