A Message from Mr. Bambauer:
An important issue affecting Mecklenburg County’s students and teachers will come before voters Nov. 7 with the $922 million Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bond proposal.
If the bond is approved, CMS would build 17 new schools and provide renovations or additions to 12 others. The bond would significantly impact learning—providing state-of-the-art technology and classrooms and learning spaces that encourage collaboration and flexibility, equipping students for success in the 21st century. Seventy-eight percent of CMS schools are at or over capacity and many were built in the 1950s. The bond would relieve overcrowding throughout the district.
For more information on the CMS school bond, please visit the CMS website atwww.cms.k12.nc.us . To vote in the November election, you can register to vote until Oct. 13. Same-day, in-person registration and voting can be done Oct. 19-Nov.4. To learn more, visit the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections website at https://www.mecknc.gov/BOE/ .
