After years of research, discussions, and gathering community feedback, the Kearney School District Board of Education voted on January 19, to put a no tax increase bond referendum on the April 4 ballot. The $27 million request will enable KSD to fund facilities expansions allowing for additional classroom space throughout the district. In addition, if passed, the bond issue will fund safety and security upgrades needed in some of the schools.
NOW IS THE TIME
Kearney School District has a rich tradition of pursuing excellence. However, some of our schools are over capacity and in need of improvements. Our desire is to be proactive in our approach to ensure that current and future students have access to quality learning space.
