To build, or not to build? That is the question being proposed to Williston residents. The school bond referendum for 2024 is underway, presenting an exciting opportunity to shape the future of our community's education system. We have been down this road before, but to me, this feels different. I truly feel this plan is thought out better, and all involved have done a good job putting it together.

What Is Being Proposed:

At the heart of this referendum are plans for a new elementary school, a vital addition to accommodate the growing needs of our expanding community. On the bond plan webpage, you'll find floor plans meticulously crafted to ensure optimal learning environments for our students. Additionally, explore an interactive map outlining potential locations for this proposed elementary school, providing insights into its integration within our town. Check out the bond plan homepage here if you want to learn more about the specifics. What is being offered is something that you can see for yourself, and you can see how it impacts all of our bottom lines.
