Thanks to the support of the Washington Township community passing the referenda on the June 2, 2020 ballot, the district is preparing to make investments in one new facility and continued renovations for buildings in our school district. These capital improvement upgrades will enhance our safety and security, provide technological upgrades, and ensure that our classrooms are designed to meet the latest in educational design trends. These improvements over the next few years will demonstrate what many community members already know… that public education and investment in our young people is a smart investment in our community.
