Voting and the 2020 Bond

Greetings GCS families. On the November 3rd ballot, voters will be asked to consider two ballot items that relate directly to Guilford County Schools. The Nov. 3rd ballot includes a $300 million school bond issue and a quarter-cent, sales and use tax. The $300 million bond is an important first step in meeting our extensive capital needs and will fund urgently needed projects as outlined in the Facilities Master Plan (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.) and board-approved priorities (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.). School buildings in the worst condition will be addressed first, with some adjustments for school construction phasing and swing space to temporarily house students during renovations. The district also plans to purchase land county-wide for new schools. Ultimately, our goal is to improve every GCS facility to ensure that all students get to learn in safe, updated and tech-ready classrooms and schools. You can learn more at the GCS Facilities Master Plan (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.) webpage or at the joint GCS-Guilford County bond information website, www.schoolbondfacts.com (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)
