Following the resolution from the Board of Education earlier this year, an application for a bond election was approved by the State of Kansas. The community will now have the opportunity to pass the bond on November 7th. Once the bond has passed with the community’s vote, a nine-month design phase will begin. This design phase will include input from a group made up of community members and will shape what will be the new Junction City High School, pending the outcome of next Tuesday’s election. Simultaneously, the Board of Education will interview for a Construction Manager At Risk, which will offer the district the ability to select the best sub-contractors for an affordable price (keeping the total price under $105 million as promised).
Geary County Schools USD 475 encourages registered voters to participate in the upcoming election. With a significant amount of information online and made available through advertisements, public presentations, mailers, and tri-fold brochures USD 475 hopes to have informed voters prior to the election.
“It’s very important to us that the community know the facts prior to the vote. We want everyone to feel confident that their vote reflects what they truly believe is the best for the community.” – Mat Droge, Executive Director of Communications for Geary County Schools
