Referendum update:

On April 5, 2016, the Juda Community voted on two referendum questions.  The results are as follows:

Question 1: This question was for the 5.7 million dollars in remodeling and building upgrades.  This question passed 293 yes to 224 no.

Question 2: This question was for $150,000 recurring operational referendum.  This question passed 329 yes to 182 no.  

On behalf of the School District of Juda and the Board of Education, I want to thank each and everyone of you for your input into this process and for taking the time to learn more about what we are trying to do here at Juda and how we want to continue this amazing asset to our community.

We are in preliminary discussions with the contractors and the architect for the timelines of the projects.  The initial plan has some smaller projects starting this summer and several projects starting in the fall of the 2016-2017 school year.  Major remodeling of the elementary is scheduled for next summer (2017).  In the next month we will be getting more specifics on when the building projects will be completed and how that may affect the flow of school.  For example, there may be times when we need to have  you enter different doors.

We are very excited to begin these projects to enhance the learning of our students.  Please call me or email me with any questions.

The following link is a summary of the projects.

Please let me know if there are any other questions.  We will update  you as the projects progress.
