• Construction equipment on school building site

  • Wake County's reputation as an excellent place to raise a family has played a large role in annual enrollment increases for many years. Since 2011, the schools in our district have grown by more than 2,000 students each year with similar growth predicted for the coming years.

    To keep up with growth while renovating older schools, our educators rely on the public to approve a capital budget that is separate from the budget that covers day-to-day operating costs.

    With the approval of the Wake County Board of Commissioners, a question will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot asking voters to approve the sale of $548 million in General Obligation Bonds to fund that capital budget. The money will be used for new school construction, renovations, technology upgrades, security improvements and other capital expenses.

    Details of how that money will be spent can be seen below. You can visit our Facilities Design and Construction page to see details of previous building programs and plans for the future.
