Springfield Public Schools Puts New Bond Issue on the April 4 Ballot

Springfield Public Schools is asking for the public to vote for a new multi-million dollar bond issue to help with renovations and other measures for the district.

The district says the bond issue is similar to the one passed in 2019, which was recently used to renovate York Elementary.

The new bond is an estimated $220 million and would allow SPS to improve and upgrade security and safety measures, do repairs on several school facilities and construct new buildings for Reed Elementary and Pipkin Middle School.

The bond issue will not enact a tax rate increase on city residents.
