New classrooms

Proceeds from the proposed bond are anticipated to create four new preK classrooms at Barbara Jordan Elementary School. Proceeds from the bond are also anticipated to finance cafeteria enhancements at the school

New educational programs

Proceeds from the proposed bond are anticipated to expand the career and technology education (CTE) program at David W. Carter High School.

Examples of CTE programs are

  • Culinary arts
  • Information technology
  • Health sciences
  • Hospitality/tourism

If the CTE program is expanded at Carter, the district would work with the community to determine which CTE program would work best for the school

Facility improvements

Proceeds from the proposed bond are anticipated to fund facility improvements at almost every school in District 6. Improvements include windows/doors, roofs, HVAC, and plumbing.
