Pride in Re-3J:  District Releases Video of Schools

The $61 million voter approved bond, as well as additional funds such as interest income, energy rebates, and competitive grants, total over $70 million in construction projects for Re-3J students. As we near completion of this intensive two year process, all schools and facilities will have been touched by the Bond Program. Many of you have seen the new and renovated schools firsthand.  The district is now releasing a video which showcases each of our schools, highlights of the major renovations, and the programs available to students.
