Last year Benicia voters approved Measure S, a bond for $49.6 million to make improvements to schools in the Benicia Unified School District. Now, point out BUSD Superintendent Charles Young and Bond Director Mitchell Stark, only a few weeks into the school year those improvements already are making a big difference.
The upgrades and improvements have been listed in four categories: modernization and technology; health, safety and security; infrastructure; and student support facilities.
While Stark has been providing regular updates to the BUSD Governing Board and the district’s social media accounts and website have been used to publish information, both Stark and Young have sought other ways to inform the public the information. So they approached The Herald about providing updates on a regular basis.
