Fixing Our Schools

This summer, thanks to the 2004 bond issue, hundreds of maintenance projects will be performed at many Parkway schools - and completed just in time for the first day of school on August 17. Summer is the perfect time to work on large projects, as well as regular maintenance, because the students are gone and the parking lots are empty. While some schools will remain fairly unaffected, others will receive major facelifts. All summer projects are funded through the 2004 bond issue. From the bond issue, $67.5 million dollars was allocated for maintenance and repair. By the end of summer 2006, approximately $42 million will have been spent on projects thus far. (By law, bond issue revenues cannot be used for anything other than capital improvement projects.)
