Creighton Community voted YES to approve the Creighton School District bond!

Dear Creighton Community ,

I am pleased to announce that the Creighton Community voted YES to approve the Creighton School District bond! This means, the district will be authorized to issue and sell up to $85,000,000 principal amount of school improvement bonds over the next 10 years. The money can only be used for capital items and improvements to existing facilities, such as buildings or renovating a school or purchasing school buses.

In addition to the bond passing, all three incumbent board members were reelected to their positions as Creighton Governing Board Members. Congratulations to Jeanne Casteen, Annette Sexton-Ruiz, and Amy McSheffrey.

Many of you were instrumental in helping the district establish the need for the bond. The Governing Board and the community heard you and supported your recommendations. The projects you helped prioritize based on community and staff input are listed below. Your continued feedback will help guide these ongoing capital projects.

Sincerely,

Dr. Donna W. Lewis

Superintendent
