With the architect's animated rendering of the proposed ECC/Kindergarten building projected on a screen, Collinsville School Superintendent Pat Herald stressed the imprortance of getting everyone out to vote Feb. 14th. A 60% approval is required to help keep Collinsville schools up with the current and projected growth as well as meet the state mandated all-day kindergarten requirements. An 8-lane track at the high school would fill Collinsville's need for athletic and community use. The track would be available for public use when not in use for school activities. The band would also benefit by the bond approval with new uniforms and instruments.

The $5.5 million bond issue would provide a furnished 18 classroom facility, with commons and office area adjacent to the existing Herald Elementary, with the track at CHS, and the band improvements. The school's information sheet cites an example of a district resident now paying $100 in taxes last year would see only a 22 cent per month increase.
