Our school board identified the need to do significant building renovations a number of years ago. Our first proposal to pass a bond to pay for this work was defeated. The board reworked the scope of the project – reducing the cost – and reached out to the community in a series of meetings, presentations, and informal conversations. Our second attempt to pass a bond to pay for this work was defeated – again by a small margin. Has anyone found a strategy to build support for this kind of initiative?
