Comstock Park Superintendent responds to bond issue election results

From: http://www.cppschools.com/

Dear Community Members,

With the greatest of sincerity and on behalf of staff, administration, the Board of Education and especially students, I extend to each of you an enthusiastic “thank you” for the support shown to Comstock Park Public Schools yesterday at the polls.

I am pleased to announce that both Proposals 1 and 2 were successful at the ballot box. This will generate $29.32 million towards technology improvements (infrastructure and equipment), safety and security enhancements, buses, facilities additions, and remodeling and renovations. It will also fund the construction of a multipurpose (instructional/athletics/performing arts) facility at the high school and installation of synthetic turf at the athletic field.

Once again, the support of the Comstock Park community is humbling.
