Thank You Aurora Voters

aps-3c-logoThank you Aurora Voters for approving ballot measure 3C


I am happy to report that APS voters approved ballot measure 3C, our $300 million bond. On behalf of our Board of Education, students, parents and staff, I would like to thank voters for their support. Our bond program will fund facility, technology and security improvements at every APS school and benefit every student.

We could not have accomplished this victory without the hard work of staff, parents and community members. I would like to extend a special thank you to the Aurora Citizens for Excellent Schools campaign committee, led by William Stuart and John Britz, for their dedication to the success of Aurora Public Schools.   

We are planning to schedule some projects to begin this school year, including the start of construction on our new Mrachek Middle School. For a full list of projects please visit: http://bond.aurorak12.org/projects/. As we move forward with projects, we will provide regular status updates to community members and staff. 

The APS bond program will make a difference at every school and help us in achieving our mission to increase academic achievement and opportunities for all students.

Thank you again for your support and dedication.
