Northfield School District voters approved the bond referendum on November 6, 2018, with 62.25% voting in favor and 37.75% voting against the bond proposal. You can see full election results here.
The referendum will provide spaces where every child in the District can have a strong start to their scholastic career and can attend secure schools!
The approved bond referendum will address several district facilities issues — including a new elementary school on the Greenvale Park campus; repurposing the current Greenvale Park as a district-wide early childhood center; additions, renovations, and security improvements at Sibley and Bridgewater; and modest renovations at Longfellow School.
I am grateful for the faith our voters continually demonstrate in our students, teachers, administrators, and staff. We will continue to be good stewards of our community’s tax dollars to support students through improved facilities.
In the coming weeks, we will begin by selecting an architect and assembling site design teams for each project associated with the bond referendum. Parents and community members will be invited to participate in this process. We will update parents about the projects on a regular basis via the District’s website and school newsletters.
It is a privilege to serve in this community that prioritizes high-quality experiences for every learner. Thank You!
