UCPS Bond Campaign Overview

2022 Bond Vote

Union County Public Schools (UCPS) is committed to ensuring that all students receive a quality education in safe and efficient learning environments.
On Nov. 8, Union County residents will vote on $134,405,000 in school bonds. This bond package will address aging facilities and replace current buildings for East Elementary and Forest Hills High, schools that were built in
the 1950s and 1960s.
UCPS has more than $800 million in facility needs to address renovations, upgrades and future planning. The 2022 bond will build on previous investments and provide adequate facilities for students, additional space for academic and athletic programs, expand dining and multi-purpose areas and remove mobile units.
With a successful bond, more projects will move up on the priority list for capital needs and future bonds.
All schools and communities benefit when we value public schools. District improvements increase safety, support evolving educational practices, modernize aging facilities and directly impact the quality of life in Union County.
