Hayfield voters, on September 11, 2017 will decide on two bond questions proposed by the Hayfield Community School District.

The first ballot question would authorize $9.99 million bond authority to finance HVAC upgrades, elementary classroom renovations, elementary restroom renovations, roof replacements, lighting upgrades to LED lighting, high school media center renovations and deferred maintenance. The new LED lighting would save the district an average of $70,000 per year in energy usage. The elementary classroom renovations would separate the "pod" style classrooms into rectangular separated classrooms. The elementary school bathrooms would become handicap accessible and old partition walls and doors would be replaced.

Question two would authorize $4.3 million in bonding authority to finance cafeteria upgrades, secure entrance and administration renovations, parking lot repairs, track resurfacing, school age child care classroom, exterior building work and concession area upgrades. The school's outdated kitchen would be upgraded and ventilation added to the dishwashing room.
