Since voters approved the bond referendum in 2014, their tax dollars have been improving the infrastructure of schools and changing the educational landscape across Broward County through investments in Safety, Music & Art, Athletics, Renovation and Technology – known as the SMART Bond Program. The SMART Bond Program’s impact extends far beyond the classroom walls, with local businesses, including small and minority-owned companies (E/S/M/WBEs), playing a vital role in the completion of renovations.
Through partnerships with local businesses like Francis Engineering, D. Stephenson Construction, Grace & Naeem, and LEGO Construction, the SMART Bond Program fulfills its goal of renovating and enhancing educational spaces throughout the district. From essential upgrades such as new roofing, HVAC systems, and fire sprinkler enhancements to building renovations and classroom additions, these businesses have been instrumental in making these transformations possible.
