School Board authorizes February referendum

The Tri-City United School District will again ask voters for help paying to add classrooms and labs, and improve older buildings, in a February 13, 2018, referendum.
The action took place at the September 11 school board meeting where a unanimous school board approved a 2-question ballot. The first question asks taxpayers for $14,285,000 to construct classrooms to the Lonsdale school, thus keeping fifth and sixth grade students at that location and freeing up space in Montgomery. The money will also be used for a roof replacement, HVAC improvements and a secure entrance to the Le Center campus, and renovated space for early childhood education at the Montgomery PreK-8 site. It also includes additional classrooms, a science lab and an expanded 3,000 square foot ag/tech lab at the high school.
