    Thank you voters for supporting your community Marana Schools through the voter-approved school improvement bond, Proposition 491!

    In 2022, a community-driven citizen group was charged with examining future projects for the Marana Unified School District and analyzing capital project costs. Their primary goal was to ensure that all students have access to a 21st-century learning experience and technology provided in a safe and secure environment. The Marana Community voted to approve Proposition 491 on November 8, 2022, focusing on District-wide improvements addressing growth, enhanced security, campus safety and technology, campus improvements and renovations, and support of our large transportation fleet.
