The people of Sunflower County will have the opportunity to vote on a $31 million bond issue.
Several years ago, the Sunflower County Consolidated School started discussing the matter.
On Thursday, the district hosted a community discussion to address what officials say are myths and rumors regarding the bond and to answers questions.
Superintendent Miskia Davis says, there is a lot of false information circulating.
She says schools will not close, taxes will not increase dramatically, and there will not be a loss of jobs.
If the bond is passed, it will be used to renovate Gentry and Thomas Edwards schools.
"There is an impact that the bond issue can have on our students for generations to come," Davis says. "As new schools impact generations of families, not just the children who are already in school, but the children who are on their way to our facility. "
The bond issue will be on the Sunflower County ballot on September 28th. 60% of voters must support the bond in order for it to pass.
