Wake County's reputation as an excellent place to raise a family has played a large role in annual student enrollment increases for many years. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted and continues to impact education worldwide. With all students returning to in-person learning for the 2022-23 school year, we will share our official average daily membership (ADM) this fall.
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. 8 ballot asking voters to approve the sale of $530.7 million in General Obligation Bonds to fund that capital budget. The money will be used for renovations, new school construction, 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.
