The Forsyth County Commissioners placed a $350 million bond referendum on the ballot on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016. These bonds are to provide funds to improve the safety and capacity of our schools as well as improve instructional delivery.
Every school will receive technology upgrades to provide digital access to all classrooms as well as media center updates, including 3-D printers and mobile furniture.
The bonds will provide $3.5 million to bring all security cameras on campuses up to the district standard. These funds would also provide secure entries to all middle schools.
The project list includes $29.4 million in capital and operational improvements, which impact many schools. The project list also includes several new schools, renovations and additions to existing schools, and projects to increase safety and transportation access to some schools.
