HARRISBURG, SD, September 27, 2022– On September 27, 2022, Harrisburg School District voters approved a $30 million bond. The voter-approved funds will provide for a new elementary school to be located just to the west of South Cliff Avenue in Harrisburg. The new elementary will relieve overcrowding at Liberty Elementary. The resolution also includes site preparation, furniture, roads and parking lots, bus garage, and potential improvements at South Middle School. If bids come in as anticipated, the bond proceeds will be used to also install a track and renovate the cafetorium and kitchen area at SMS.
Superintendent Graf said, “I want to thank everyone who took the time to cast a ballot in this election. The bond funding that voters approved tonight will allow the District to continue to meet the needs of our students and families as we manage growth. We are very appreciative of the support that our patrons have shown through the bond vote today and in prior referendums. The vote is an affirmation that, as a school community, we are committed to providing our students with a modern learning environment. This is only the start of our work, though. It's the work of our staff who do great work in these buildings each and every day that will make the biggest difference in our students' lives.”
