Voters approved a $4.6 million bond issue for the Grain Valley School District last week. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak with Assistant Superintendent Mark Snow:
The issue was placed on the ballot because the district needed more space at the high school. Five large new classrooms are planned in the science wing.
Advertisements for bids were sent out on Friday. They are due back February 28th and will be presented to the Board of Education on March 7th. The district hopes to begin work March 11th.
The issue passed with 80 percent approval.
