On June 8, voters in McPherson will go to the polls to weigh in on the future of USD 418 facilities. The proposal, which was more than two years in the making, represents a comprehensive and long-term solution to our building needs, and would positively impact every student in our district for decades to come.
We know it’s an important decision, and to that end, we’ve scheduled several opportunities for the public to come and learn more, take a tour, and get your questions answered:
Tuesday, May 4, 6:00 to 8:00 pm – McPherson High School
Thursday May 6, 6:00 to 8:00 pm – McPherson High School
Tuesday, May 11, noon to 1:00 pm – Virtual Presentation via Zoom and YouTube (which will be recorded and available online following the event)
Friday, May 14, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm – McPherson Community Building (in conjunction with All School’s Day activities)
With the exception of the virtual presentation, these events will be structured as an open house, with social distancing and the opportunity to speak with the construction and design experts and district leaders about the bond. The goal is to ensure every resident and voter in the district has an opportunity to get the facts about the proposal and have questions answered before Election Day.
In addition to the community events, you’ll also find a great deal of information, including renderings, video tours, and frequently asked questions on our dedicated bond website, www.usd418bond.com. We’ll also be sending out informational mailers in the coming weeks, so please keep an eye on your mailbox. Lastly, every week you’ll see a column like this one, aimed at covering common questions about the bond.
Thank you for taking time to learn about this project and the support you offer the students and staff of McPherson Public Schools.
