Residents are invited to take part in a Town Hall type meeting where one of the topics will be the $800 million referendum that will be on the ballot November 4.
On October 1, Coral Springs residents are invited to attend the annual “Conversation with the District” at J.P. Taravella High School. The bond referendum will be part of the discussion and voters will learn more on how the money will be allocated for their schools.
At the August 12, School Board workshop, district officials discussed what the bond money will cover:
- More than half will go towards fixing leaking roofs and repairing aged schools.
- Upgrading fire alarms, sprinkler systems as well as creating a single point of entry for all schools.
- Upgrading STEM labs, media centers, cafeterias and technology.
“This initiative represents the board’s greatest legacy to break with the past decisions and establish a new object for allocating resources for the needs of our students,” said Superintendent Robert Runcie at the workshop.
Mark the date: Wednesday, October 1, at J.P. Taravella High School, 10600 Riverside Drive, Coral Springs, 33071. There is no fee to attend. Registration for speakers begins at 6 p.m. and the event begins at 6:30 p.m.
