USD 380 Voters To Decide On Building Improvement & Security Updates

An $8.25 million bond issue for USD 380 building improvements in Frankfort and Centralia will be decided by voters Tuesday.

The decision would increase the levy by 12 mills, which would result in $138 annual increase on a home valued at $100,000. Following a series of public meetings, and much consideration, USD 380 has proposed the package of improvements designed to increase safety and security with building and classroom lock systems, intercom and camera coverage.

If passed, pre-K classes now hosted at the District Office in Vermillion would move to the Frankfort and Centralia communities, with additional classrooms to be added. In Centralia, new classrooms would be housed in the old gym, with a new gym built.
