Scottsdale Boys and Girls Clubs President Steve Davidson

What is the purpose of the SUSD Bond?
The SUSD bond is dedicated to rebuilding and remodeling the 7 middle schools in the district with the goals of increasing safety, efficiency and academic programming support. Rebuilding the middle schools will address safety issues such as asbestos containment, security enhancements, and allow for the creation of safe and proper bus drop off areas. In addition, rebuilding the aging structures will increase energy efficiency; replacing old, energy-draining air conditioning units will allow funds to be diverted from utility bills to the classroom. The bond will also support the kind of programming and curricula that is demanded by and required for our students to be successful in the 21st century. Better equipped science labs, increased foreign language labs, and continuing enhancement of technology will enable these new schools to promote and deliver the skills to our students that will prepare them for the 21st century global marketplace. Once passed, bond projects are expected to start in May 2011.
