Changes Proposed For Wichita School Bond Issue

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

A group that supports a bond issue made a recommendation to board members at Monday night's meeting about how the bond money should be spent.

The group is called Citizens Alliance for Responsible Education, or CARE, and is made up of volunteers who have helped to campaign for the bond issue.

Originally, the proposed bond issue included the construction of two high schools, two kindergarten through eighth grade schools, and four new replacement elementary schools. It was also set to add 60 storm shelters and extensive upgrades to athletic and fine-arts facilities.

At the end of the meeting, CARE recommended to keep the bond at $350 million, which included adding a magnet tech high school aimed at avionics. They also cut some of the new schools from the plan as well as some of the athletic facilities.

The bond has been set for vote on the November 4th ballot.
