Bossier Parish School Board 2012 Bond Issue

The Bossier Parish School System is one of the fastest growing public school districts in Louisiana, resulting in record student enrollment. To address the rapid growth across Bossier Parish, voters approved a $210 million bond referendum in April 2012 to build new schools and improve existing ones, better positioning Bossier Schools for the present and future and offering students a desirable learning environment.

Program Manager SGB/Yates has created this site to share information and progress on the construction and renovation of Bossier Parish Schools with the local community.
