Duration: 5 months
On April 6th, voters in the Independence School District, located outside of Kansas City, MO, voted overwhelmingly yes to approve the district’s requested bond issue. Nearly 85 percent of voters said yes to issuing $43 million in bonds for upgrades to safety and security measures at many school entrances, the fine arts, and auditorium facilities at the high schools, and playground equipment.
“I’m very blessed that we have a community that’s so supportive of the school district,” Independence School District Superintendent Dale Herl said. “Even through COVID and a very challenging year, the community has remained behind the school district.”
Included in the bond passing is funding to renovate 17 elementary school playgrounds. Work on the various playgrounds began almost immediately after the early April election and is scheduled to be completed by the end of August 2021.
