We appreciate the consideration that the community put toward Unity School District's referendum.  We thank the community members who had a crucial role in the planning process by participating in the facilities study meetings.

It was important to do the facilities study, ask the question, and get the vote results to guide where the District will go with its long-range facilities planning.  The referendum did not pass, as those who voted gave their opinion with a majority of them choosing a "no" vote.  With that result, we will work to re-develop a capital improvement plan to address the long-term needs of the District.  Additionally, with over three hundred fewer voters than last April's election, it is imperative that we work to engage the community even more in future facilities discussions.

The needs identified in the facilities study still require our collaborative attention.  The nearly sixty-year old infrastructure of the high school will need to be addressed in the future, as its energy efficiency and heating/cooling mechanicals remain a concern.  Additionally, the District's quality programs need a long-term facilities approach that will meet their needs and provide opportunities for our community.  Furthermore, the traffic flow issues of the campus need a comprehensive solution.

We will continue to work with the Unity community to address the District's facility needs.  The results of the referendum election are a vital part of an ongoing conversation with the community regarding the future of Unity School District's facilities.  While the referendum did not pass, a great deal has been gained through this process and it will be exciting to see what the future holds for Unity's facilities.

Sincerely,

Brandon Robinson

Superintendent
