The Pioneer Board of Education agreed to solicit contractor bids and issue bonds for the capital improvement project approved last May by district voters. The measure was approved at the Oct. 4 regular meeting.

The $28.64 million capital improvement project would help complete ongoing renovations in the Pioneer High School auditorium, replace the HVAC system at Delevan, and fund upgrades at the turf stadium, among other improvements.

The measure permits the issuance of Bond Anticipation Notes (BANs) of up to $25.59 million and to utilize $3.04 million from the district's Capital Reserve Fund to pay for a portion of the plan.

Work is slated to begin on the new project in Summer 2023.
