Last week PPS staff presented several options for a May 2017 Health, Safety, and Modernization Bond to the Board of Education to continue PPS’ long-term plan to modernize and improve the health, safety, and learning environments at every school through a series of capital construction bonds.
Click here for details of the two bond options and for background information on the modernization projects and additional health and safety needs and the results of a districtwide public opinion survey.
Our facilities’ needs are significant, and community feedback on these bond options will shape the priorities of the next round of investments.
There are several ways to engage:
- Participate in the online survey, open through February 9
