Coyle Schools seeking $1.4M bond for district-wide improvements

Registered voters within the Coyle Public Schools boundaries will head to the polls on April 2 to decide on a $1.4 million bond issue that will address proposed projects across the district.

The bulk of the bond would go towards roofing improvements throughout the district, according to school officials. The district would allocate $710,000 toward those projects.

Another portion of the funds ($270,000) would help make improvements at the existing cafeteria including electrical, HVAC, and plumbing needs. Another request of $135,000 would help construct a common area for the cafeteria.

The district would like to acquire site improvements to help with the demolition of unusable building space for an amount identified as $185,000.

Additional funds ($140,000) would help restroom improvements at the high school and elementary school.

In October, a nearly $30M bond proposal failed by 62 percent that would have built a new elementary and middle school, a new multi-purpose building, a cafeteria, a baseball field, and school buses.

For the upcoming April election to be successful, the school district will need to receive a super-majority of the vote which is 60 percent.
