The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Board of Education will hold public hearings to gather feedback about a proposed bond referendum in November. If approved, the bond package would pay for school construction, renovation and repairs. It would be the first large-scale referendum for WS/FCS’ school construction since 2006.

The school board has developed a project list based on needs that total about $325 million in present-day costs. After gathering public feedback, the board will finalize its list before it presents a formal request to Forsyth County Commissioners this spring.

Each meeting will start with a brief presentation about the proposed projects, followed by time for public comments. Click here to see the presentation.
