As We Grow: Construction Updates

On Tuesday, April 4, 2017, the Kearney School District (KSD) community voted to approve a $27 million bond issue. The bond was overwhelmingly approved with an 84% “Yes” vote. KSD wants to sincerely thank the district community for the outpouring of support shown throughout this process.

Since April, the district has been hard at work to further develop plans to move projects forward. This page is dedicated to sharing information about the development and progress made in each area.
