The February 11th special election for Lincoln Public Schools has the support of the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce. Citing the value LPS represents to the community and continous demands for focused, high-quality workforce development programming, Chamber President, Wendy Birdsall, says the proposed Career Academy is an important part of that bond. The $153 million special bond election marks the first time Lincoln has conducted a bond election by mail-in ballot. If approved, it will pay for the Lincoln Schools portion of a career academy, to be built in cooperation with Southeast Community College. It will also add two schools and provide system-wide technology and security updates.
