Center starts construction in 2020

A lot more construction will be seen at Center School District in 2020 due to the $48 million no tax increase bond that was approved by voters on April 2.  Around 82 percent of voters approved a bond that would support safety and security upgrades, infrastructure and maintenance projects and early childhood/elementary building updates.
