Fairfax County voters will decide a $250 million bond referendum to improve Fairfax County Public Schools when they go to the polls on Nov. 5.
The referendum was selected by the school board in May. It includes $42 million for new construction, $8.2 million for school expansion and $276 million for school renovations.
The referendum includes about $67.7 million for renovation work at Langley High School and about $16.5 million for renovations at Haycock Elementary School in Falls Church.
Overall, more than $24 million is included for infrastructure management, including roof replacements, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning replacements, athletic infrastructure, security enhancements, asphalt paving, technology upgrades, and improvements required by the Americans With Disabilities Act, the school system said in a news release.
The 2013 bond referendum also includes $10 million for site acquisition costs for a new high school in the southwest part of the county. Unspent dollars from past bond issues have reduced costs for this bond by $109 million, according to the school system.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 5. For more information about voting, call 703-222-0776 or go to http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/eb.
