Voters in the Shenandoah School District will have the opportunity to learn more about the bond issue referendum on the Nov. 5 ballot next week at two informational meetings.

Tim Seibert from CA Construction Management company will present information at two sessions Monday, Oct. 7. The first meeting will be at 5 p.m. at Leisure Hall in Farragut. The second meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Gladys Wirsig Auditorium at Shenandoah High School.

If approved by a 60% supermajority, the $14.7 million bond issue will provide funds to repurpose space in the existing high school for science and technology and other STEM-related areas of instruction. Two new additions will also be built, additional space for Career Technical Education programs and a new gym.
