    District Thanks Patrons for Support of Bond Issue

    Yes Willard Schools would like to say a big "thanks" to all those that took the time to vote and express their support for Willard kids! The turnout for this election was strong! The district brought patrons our two most urgent needs - building a second Intermediate School in south part of the district and replacing our 40 year old track. A strong majority of patrons said yes! They have agreed with those needs and asked us to continue providing good learning environments for Willard kids.

    We know that many of our neighbors and friends that don’t have kids in school voted for this bond issue and we don’t take that for granted. We’re grateful for the trust our patrons have placed in us and we pledge to be vigilant stewards of that trust. We’ll go to work immediately on these projects and will squeeze every ounce of value out of each dollar entrusted to us.
