Shawnee Mission voters have an important decision coming in the next few weeks.
A bond proposal is being put forth with the goal that Shawnee Mission will continue to be ranked among the finest districts in the nation, employing exceptional educators who work in state-of-the-art facilities where learners achieve their personal best.
The bond proposal supports a sequence of improvement projects which will have a positive and lasting impact on SMSD facilities. These were selected for their potential to support student learning, benefit every student, and facilitate the hiring of additional secondary teachers. The proposal includes updates across the district for students in Pre-K through 12th grade.
