USD 501 Officials Hope Bond Issue Will Take Students To New Heights

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- USD 501 officials hope a $143,000,000 bond issue will help them improve school security and take their science departments to new heights.

The bond issue also includes adding FEMA approved shelters in 12 public schools. A Pre-K through 8th grade center at Jardine Middle School and a Topeka Center for Advanced Learning and Careers which would create programs for students with local businesses.

Superintendent Julie Ford believes the bond would put Topeka students ahead of the curve.

One of the schools the proposed bond issue would close is Bishop elementary for safety reasons.

Residents within the district will be able to vote on the bond issue April 8th.
