Election Results - Proposition S Passes with 79.28 percent approval


Dear FHSD Community,

I am excited to share that on June 2, our District voters approved Proposition S with 79.28 percent voting YES. I want to thank all of our staff members who helped share information about the importance of Prop S with our community and the volunteer members of our campaign committee for their dedication and enthusiasm during the entire process. I want to especially thank all of our voters who understood the current state of our facilities and the positive long-term impact Prop S funding would have on our students, our staff, and our schools. We are extremely grateful for this demonstration of community support, and we are anxious to move forward with the projects outlined in our Comprehensive Facilities Master Plan. With this green light from our stakeholders, design and construction work will begin this summer.   

We named the bond issue Proposition S to represent safer students and stronger schools. The funds generated by the passage of Prop S will pay for major updates at the older schools in the District, including Henderson, Fairmount, Becky-David, Hollenbeck, and Barnwell. We can now build a new Francis Howell North High School, and finance improvements and safety updates at all schools across the District.

Feedback from our community over the past several years has indicated that our stakeholders want FHSD to continue to be a great school district. On June 2, you helped put those words into action. FHSD is committed to providing a quality education while remaining good stewards of your taxpayer dollars. Today the future of our facilities looks bright for our students and our District. Thank you again for all of your support!

Sincerely,

Dr. Mary Hendricks-Harris

Superintendent
