Facilities: Moving Forward
On behalf of the students, staff and the entire community, we would like to thank everyone for the generous support for our schools. On March 14, 2017, voters in the Bryant School District approved the 3.6 mill increase to fund new facilities and building projects for our current and future students.
Project updates are intended to allow parents, students, faculty, business leaders and other members of our community to view and engage in the process during the upcoming months and years. Your investment makes this progress possible. Our promise is reliable stewardship of your taxpayer dollars.

Estimates were based on costs for 2016.
