Prop R Creates Safe School Entrances Districtwide

Feb. 19, 2021

All Lindbergh Schools will have safer, more secure school entrances following a series of important Prop R improvements.

In addition to funding new secure vestibules at Crestwood, Long and Kennerly elementary schools, and Sperreng and Truman Middle School; Prop R will also support the addition of security glazing on entryway glass and transaction windows at five schools that already have secure vestibule entryways.

The most recent project, which was approved on Feb. 9 by the Board of Education, will add security glazing on entryway glass, and transaction windows at Dressel, Sappington and Concord elementary schools, and the Lindbergh Early Childhood Education main and west campuses. The board voted 7-0 to approve a $191,000 bid for Hof Construction to complete the work. Lindbergh High School's new construction also includes plans for a secure entrance.

Lindbergh voters overwhelmingly approved Prop R, a $105 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue to revitalize the Lindbergh High School campus and create districtwide safety equity, in April 2019. More than 77 percent of voters cast ballots in favor of Prop R, which required 57.15 percent for approval.
