Bonds, Ballots and Buildings

January 12, 2022 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Facility planning is not about roofs, walls and windows. It’s about creating a school environment that supports quality instruction and programs for students – now and for years to come. Capital investment planning is an ongoing effort, part of the strategic planning process, where board members, school leaders, faculty, staff and community members work together to align facilities and technology with their educational vision for students.

When communities invest in schools, they invest in the future. Join the OSSBA team, along with school construction and design experts, as we discuss how to develop and successfully communicate a comprehensive capital investment plan that will garner support from local voters and transform education for your students.
