On Monday, Nov. 24, the Wichita Board of Education will be asked to approve McLean Elementary's bond project. This will be the final elementary project of the 2008 bond issue! As of Nov. 20, 78% of all bond projects made possible by the $370 million issue will be completed. In addition to the McLean project, 11 other bond projects are underway, with the final six in the design process.

One of the major highlights of the $370 million bond issue passed in 2008 was the promise that when completed, every attendance center would have a FEMA storm shelter to protect students and staff in the event of severe weather. At the conclusion of the 2014-15 school year, 91% of all current school sites will have completed storm shelters.†For more information on completed safe room projects, click here.
