2022 Bond - The Foundations of Tomorrow
The world-class experiences available in the Troy School District are the result of decades of investment and planning for future generations of students. We were delighted to find this archive video of the Troy High groundbreaking ceremony in 1990, and humbled to hear the voices from 32 years ago share what they dreamed for future students and staff in Troy.
As we "Prepare For Tomorrow" with our 2022 bond, we are committed to investing in all students who will be a part of the Troy School District in the decades to come.
What are the highlights for Bond 2022?
Future-Ready Learning Environments
Create innovative and engaging educational spaces that foster collaboration and critical thinking, preparing students for college and careers of the future. These spaces will uphold the tradition of academic excellence and community engagement that drives families to Troy.
Infrastructure & Sustainability
Ensure critical improvements to address aging and outdated schools and facilities, with a focus on increased operational efficiency and healthy, productive environments for students, staff, and community.
Develop and upgrade spaces for community and student programming, with an emphasis on STEM-based learning, robotics, athletics, recreation, fine and performing arts. Continue to build on partnerships with business and industry to offer opportunities for career and in-demand skills.
Safety & Technology
Enhance security measures at all levels, including fencing, secure doors, upgraded camera systems and other safety infrastructure. Upgrade network/phone/ technology infrastructure to ensure that students and staff are connected to advanced resources needed for research, innovation and cutting-edge tools that enrich learning and achievement.
