Spotlight on Bettendorf School Bond Referendum
The Bettendorf Community School District has scheduled a bond referendum vote for Dec. 11 to fund building projects at schools throughout the district.
Our own Mike Raso, superintendent of the Bettendorf School District, is the scheduled speaker for our Nov. 28 meeting when he will discuss the bond referendum.
If it passes, the district would receive $30 million from general obligation bonds to fund remodeling, repair and upgrade projects. While some work will be done at every school, highlight projects include a fitness center expansion, pool renovation and construction of a wrestling room at the high school.
If the referendum fails, school revamp projects will still go ahead, but will take a longer time, school officials have said.
