While schools were closed on Nov. 5, the Brighton community voted on a $59 million bond to bring new improvements to the Brighton Area Schools. Within a few hundred votes, the outcome of the vote was positive and improvements to the school district will commence as soon as the summer of 2020.
Improvements were locally believed to just be for athletics, but that is not the case. The majority of the bond will go to the STEAM programs of Brighton Area Schools; this portion will be distributed to schools using a by-student basis. In addition to this, there will be a new STEAM center built at Brighton High School.
The other benefits of this bond will go to the general improvements and site work of the Brighton Area School District, along with the athletic department, instructional technology and the overall classrooms of the schools.
The bond will be implemented over the next several years, so lookout for new additions and improvements to the Brighton Area School District.
