Brunswick County kicks off school year with bond talks
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Brunswick County schools are kicking off the school year with talks of new buildings and technology.
It’s all part of a proposed $152 million school bond. The county is asking citizens to cast their ballot for the bond in November. Tonight’s kickoff celebrations will be held at North, West and South Brunswick High Schools. They are open to the public to give people a chance to learn and ask questions about what the bond could mean for the schools and students.
District spokeswoman Jessica Swencki said the bond money will support new construction and improvements at all 19 schools.
“We will continue to work through other avenues to look at how we can improve salaries for teachers and all of those other things we want to do but simply can’t do with the bond dollars,” Swencki said.
Swencki added that if the bond is not passed, the county’s only option will be to look at redistricting the schools.
