On April 2, 2019, 61.22% of Springfield Public Schools’ voters approved an 18-cent increase to the debt-service levy to fund 39 high-priority projects (Proposition S). The projects include renovations, expansion, and/or new construction for six schools and the creation of safer entrances at 31 schools. Space to add early childhood classrooms was created at three locations. The $167.73 million bond addresses safety, accessibility and quality issues.
One year later and “nearly all projects are on schedule or slightly ahead”, according to this News-Leader article.
