Wayne seeking bond issues


The Wayne School District is asking voters to approve two separate bond issues totaling $1,070,000 to enhance buildings and upgrade transportation equipment.

Voters will go to the polls next Tuesday, February 14, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

School elections must pass by a super majority (60 percent or higher).

Proposition No. 1 would be for $850,000 to perform security improvements district-wide and renovate, repair and or remodel district-wide as needed.

Proposition No. 2 would be for $220,000 to replace current high mileage buses.

“One of the best attributes of working at Wayne Schools is the overwhelming support we have received from the community, especially regarding bond issues in the past,” Superintendent Toby Ringwald said.

“We are proposing this bond to help continue renovations across campus that began in the summer of 2021 with the remodeling of the cafeteria. These bond funds will address the second phase of that project by continuing renovations across the campus.”

Those will include new flooring, paint, and lighting, and ceilings will be infused into all common areas of the campus and continue throughout as many classrooms as funds will allow.

“This will also include security upgrades such as new lock sets on classroom doors and  the continuation of new door and lock installation on buildings,” Ringwald continued.

“Two new route buses are also included in this bond issue to replace high mileage buses,” Ringwald concluded.
