Lindbergh voters overwhelmingly approved Prop R, a $105 million, 83-cent no-tax-rate-increase bond issue to build a new revitalized Lindbergh High School, secure its campus and improve safety at several of the district’s schools by adding secure front entrances.

More than 77 percent of voters cast ballots on April 2 in favor of Prop R, which required 57.15 percent for approval.

The bond issue will create what the district is calling “safety equity” with districtwide safety vestibules at front entrances, the district said in a news release.

“My sincere thanks goes out to our community members who recognized the value in creating safe, secure and future-ready schools for all Lindbergh students,” Superintendent Tony Lake said in the release. “I’d also like to thank our volunteers who worked so hard to make Prop R a success.”

The district invites the community to learn more and follow Prop R progress at go.lindberghschools.ws/PropR.

Among the attendees of a Prop R victory party were Superintendent Tony Lake, board members, administrators, principals and parents.
