Letter to the Community - November 8, 2023

Dear Tolleson ESD Families & Community;

Thank you for your support of our district’s request to sell bonds on the November 7 election ballot. The unofficial results of the election indicate the request to sell bonds is approved. We are incredibly grateful for your support! The money will be used to provide the following for our students, staff, teachers, and families:

  • Renovations and improvements to existing school facilities (including kitchens, cafeterias, classrooms, and exterior weatherproofing).
  • Improving school grounds (including playgrounds, play fields, and drainage).
  • Replacement of pupil transportation and fleet vehicles.
  • Improving the safety, security, and equipment in school buildings such as:
    • Replacement of aging or non-serviceable air-conditioning and heating units
    • Upgrading of ?re alarm and security systems
    • Security window treatment and protective glass (bulletproof)
    • Roof replacements
    • Replacement of worn flooring
    • Replacement of furniture and equipment
    • Upgrade classroom technology equipment

We look forward to keeping you informed of our progress on each of these projects.

I also want to recognize and congratulate Ms. Belinda Quezada who was honored for her standing service on our governing board by the Arizona Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents. Thank you, Ms. Quezada, for your outstanding service!

Just a reminder that our schools will be closed Friday, November 10 in honor of the Veterans Day holiday. We are grateful to all those in our community and within our district for their service to our great country. Thank you!
