MEASURE 20-219 REJECTED BY VOTERS
As I'm sure you're aware by now, the district's proposed bond (Measure 20-219) did not pass on November 5. The Lane County Elections Office shows the bond failing by 3.58%, or 464 votes.
Obviously, we are deeply disappointed with the result and will be working to find out why voters ultimately did not support the bond measure. We're very grateful to everyone for their efforts.
The need for significant improvements to schools, the replacement of Hamlin and upgraded technology have not changed, so we need to continue work to find a solution that the community will support.
The information about the bond measure and what it would have accomplished for our students will remain on this webpage for reference and to help guide the district as it moves forward.
This webpage contains information regarding the district's recently proposed bond measure. Please see the following webpages for more information:
The Springfield Board of Education unanimously voted on August 26 to place a bond measure on the November 5 special election ballot.
The $62.5 million bond would address many issues faced by Springfield schools as a result of older and uneven access to technology and aging facilities that no longer adequately support an educational program that intends to prepare students for 21st century careers.
The projects were recommended by the 26-member, citizen-led Facilities Advisory Committee, which meets as needed to review facility needs to ensure that district facilities support student learning for all students. The recommendations are based on student enrollment projections and patterns, educational program needs, and building maintenance and safety issues.
