UPDATE: On April 23rd, Superintendent Obeng released a statement regarding the Capital Plan and the proposed driveways at Edmunds and Champlain Elementary.
On April 10, 2018, our facilities team presented the latest ideas for a plan forward in year two of the Capital Plan. The board was presented with an exciting plan that includes upgrades at Hunt and Edmunds.
Additionally, BSD’s facilities team put forth their recommendation to move forward with the construction of two new early education centers, one of two options presented to the board in November of 2017.
Check out the entire plan, timeline, and justification here, or look below for specific plans and ways to get involved (and note that this page is being frequently updated!) To see how we got to this point, please find the HISTORY of the Capital Plan towards the bottom of this page.

On Town Meeting Day in 2017, Burlington residents approved a $19 million infrastructure improvement bond ballot, passing the item by 76.48% of the vote.
The District plans to combine the bond money with money set aside for property maintenance in the budget each year. Those resources will allow for the implementation of a long-term, strategic plan for the property and facilities needs in the District.
The planning of a large capital program has been happening since the spring of 2016, when the District began presenting property needs, assessments and long-term plans to constituents. Implementation of the capital program is underway and we need your help! Please see below for updates and presentations, as well as ways to learn more and provide input in this ever-evolving process.
