The Warren Local Schools Board of Education voted on another upcoming bond issue this week and we hope residents in that district take the time to become informed about the new plan. Additional numbers will be presented at a 6:30 p.m. July 31 meeting at Warren High School.
The 3.45-mill bond issue and 5-mill permanent improvement levy would pay the local share of building a new high school and some of the annual costs for upkeep at the district's other buildings.
This comes after five previous bond issues related to the construction of new schools failed before voters.
We still think the students and staff of the Warren district deserve and greatly need more updated buildings and that building new would have given the communities the most bang for their buck.
Since that doesn't appear to be an option, we think voters should really consider the new plan.
Every student in the district goes through the high school and it's a site where updates in technology that come along with new construction are desperately needed. It would allow students to be much more competitive upon graduation.
Voters have said no to building all new. Now the board is compromising, so maybe residents will, too.
