               Empowering Excellence in Everyone

 

The Harrison County School District has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade. The district’s enrollment has continued to increase every year, from 12,877 students in 2008 to more than 15,000 students in 2018.
 

We are blessed to be able to attract so many families to the Harrison County School District.  We are at a point now where we must construct new facilities and upgrade our existing campuses to accommodate all this growth. 

The Harrison County School Board has approved up to a $55 million bond issue to build two new schools, redesign one campus, and renovate entrances to improve the security of schools throughout the district.  We are seeking public support for this bond issue during an election that will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. 

The total cost of the proposed project is up to $71 million. The district has committed up to $16 million toward the initial cost of the project, so the bond issue will be up to $55 million.  Based on current projections, the district does not anticipate this bond issue would require an increase in tax mills levied for District purposes. 

In addition, there are continual capital improvement projects that are ongoing throughout the district as we continue to grow and improve.
