Feb. 15 Bond Referendum: Your One-Stop Shop
On February 15, 2022, the Eastchester Union Free School District community will vote on a bond referendum to address the needs of aging buildings and the health and safety of all students, faculty and staff. Through needed updates and improvements, this two-part proposal will allow us to adapt to the concerns of modern times and remain committed to our mission to “provide a quality education in a safe, stable and secure environment.”
This page will serve as your one-stop shop for all information pertaining to the bond. We encourage all voters to educate themselves by reviewing what’s on this page. Hopefully, what we’ve laid out will help you make the best decision on how to move forward.
As noted above, this capital project calls for investments in two separate propositions.
