Broward Schools Set to Ask Voters to Approve School Bond: Report

The Broward School Board may get a much-needed infusion of cash if voters give a planned bond issue a thumbs-up in November.

According to the Miami Herald, the school board unanimously approved a measure to ask the state to put the $800 million bond question on the November ballot. The state is expected to quickly approve the request, according to the Herald.

However, getting voters to approve bonds or more debt for any type of projects in recent years has proven difficult for communities across the country. According to the Herald, Superintendent Robert Runcie will tell the voters the bond is an investment in the future.

If the bond measure passes, it’s expected to go towards capital improvements, including fixing schools that are breaking down, and technological advances.
