Comstock Park — On May 2 voters in the Comstock Park Public School district will vote on a school bond proposal. If approved by voters, this bond will provide $59.46 million for district-wide improvements with an estimated zero tax rate increase over the current rate.
Dave Washburn, superintendent of Comstock Park Public Schools, said the bond will focus on safety and security, educational environments and health and efficiency.
“This proposal is an outcome of our district’s strategic plan. We appreciate the guidance of so many stakeholders, including staff, parents and community members,” Washburn said. He noted a community survey also helped in this process.
Some of the proposed projects include: updating building access controls; surveillance system upgrades; exterior LED lighting; parking lot improvements; new buses; technology upgrades; new classroom furniture; classroom renovations; performing arts upgrades; improving air quality; cafeteria and kitchen renovations; plumbing and roofing upgrades; a new auxiliary gym; and new bathrooms and classroom sinks.
