Williston School Bond Public Forums

Posted: Updated:

After a $55 million dollar failed school bond in 2012, the growing pains continue for the Williston Public School District.

Superintendent Dr. Viola LaFontaine says the primary feedback following the vote were requests for more public input.

The district will be looking for public support on a new bond vote in the near future, but first, school officials are listening to the public --- weighing options for the best future.

(Dr. Viola LaFontaine, Williston School District Superintendent) "No matter what we do, we need more space. The increasing population started five years ago. Next year those kids will be in the middle school. We really want to hear from the public and we want to support them because they need to support us."

The first of three public forums will be held Wednesday from 5-7 p.m. at the high school commons area.

LaFontaine says rather than a speaker, the forums are set up in seven 'stations' for small group discussion and an informational walk through.
