BCSC gives approval for $5.5 million construction bonds

Bartholomew Consolidated Schools are moving forward with two new construction bonds.

One will fund repairs and security updates at 16 school locations. Superintendent Dr. Jim Roberts explains

That bond will be for $2.5 million dollars, Roberts said.

The second bond will fund long-delayed repairs at the school district’s transportation and food services building at a cost of about $3 million.

While the two bonds combined are about $5.5 million dollars, Roberts said that they will have no effect on the school district’s tax rate because of other bonds being retired.

The school board approved the bonds last night.
