Bond Referendum Projects

FRod1

 

Beaufort County voters’ approval of the school district’s $344 million bond referendum – the largest bond referendum in the district’s history – was a dramatic demonstration of support for our 22,000 students and the bright futures we aim for them to achieve.

On behalf of the district, I want to thank our community for approving this historic bond referendum aimed at improving school safety, renovating facilities and adding classroom space to address enrollment growth. 

Now the real work of the referendum has begun.  Now we will demonstrate to voters that their vote of confidence was deserved.  Now we will complete these important building projects on budget, and we will do that in a straightforward and transparent fashion.

This new website will allow parents and community members to track the progress of each referendum project as well as review regular reports from the Citizen-Led Oversight Committee.

I encourage parents, students and community members to monitor our progress.  We will do our best to earn – and retain – everyone’s confidence and support.

Dr. Frank Rodriguez, Superintendent


Referendum Projects Guide

Individual projects will be spread out over a four- to five-year period ending in 2024 or 2025.

The MENU at left provides links to:

  • Projects that are currently under way.
  • The Citizen-Led Oversight Committee (CLOC), an independent group of volunteers who will monitor all referendum building projects, schedules, budgets and expenditures. Quarterly reports from the CLOC will be presented to the Beaufort County Board of Education and posted to this website. Minutes of CLOC meetings will also be posted.
  • A history of the 2019 Referendum; how it was developed; how referendum projects were determined; presentations, meeting minutes and information relating to the work of the all-volunteer Community Project Review Committee.
  • Projects listed by schools with information on how referendum-related projects are progressing. Once actual construction begins, photos of the work will provide visual updates on the work.
