On June 26, 2012, citizens within Weber School District voting precincts will have the opportunity to vote in a bond election. The Weber School District Board of Education is asking permission to bond for $65 Million in order to address growth in student enrollment and replace several aging facilities in our district.
It has been important to me and the board of education that we be transparent with the public on this issue. To date, I have presented information regarding the bond to at least 49 different groups. These groups have included Breakfast Exchange Club, Rotary Club, PTSA presidents, presidents-elect, and legislative vice-presidents, as well as specific meetings with communities directly impacted by the bond. Additionally, we have held two public hearings. Throughout the process public input has been sought and that input has helped us shape the list of proposed bond projects. We have been most grateful for the recommendations that we have received from the public. As we have visited with these various groups, we have felt overwhelming support.
