Capital Bond Referendum Passes

Message from Tom Lee, Superintendent of Waseca Public Schools: The members of the School Board, Administration and the staff of the Waseca Public Schools are overwhelmed at the support our community demonstrated tonight with the successful passage of both capital bond referendum questions. We are deeply humbled and thankful. Our vision statement begins with the phrase, "In collaboration with our community." Tonight, the community gave us the ability to move forward in resetting the clock on the Junior/Senior High School and renovating our other facilities. As we move forward, we want everyone in the community to know that we have comitted ourselves to assuring that when done, our facilities will most obviously meet program needs and be a source of great pride for many years to come. Thank you to everyone who voted to improve our facilities. To those who voted against these questions, be assured that we will work diligently to earn your confidence throughout the design and renovation process and in everything we do. We exist to serve all the students of this community and all the residents of this community as well.
