Voters to Decide Fate of $360 Million Bond Referendum

Fairfax County voters will soon get the chance to decide the fate of a school bond referendum next week.

The general election ballot will ask voters if they want to approve a $360 million bond referendum for Fairfax County Public Schools.

For families in the Tysons area, the bond includes:

  • $19.5 million in construction funds for adding an addition to Madison High School in Vienna
  • $49.6 million in construction funds for renovating Cooper Middle School in McLean
  • $1.7 million in planning funds for renovating Louise Archer Elementary School in Vienna

The bond also includes $2 million in planning funds for a new “Silver Line elementary school.”

Madison High School is one of nearly a dozen high schools in Fairfax that is over 100% capacity, Tysons Reporter previously reported.

Fairfax County uses bonds to pay for renovating and building new schools.
