The Rio Rancho Regional Chamber of Commerce proudly announces its endorsement of the Rio Rancho Public Schools’ $80 million bond proposal, a significant investment in the future of our community and the educational opportunities it offers to our youth.

The bond proposal, set to be put before voters in the upcoming November 7th election, allocates funding to address critical needs in our school system, with a strong focus on safety, security, infrastructure, and educational innovation.

Safety and security remain paramount concerns for our community and this bond addresses needed upgrades. A portion of the funds will be dedicated to enhancing safety measures in our schools, providing students and educators with a secure environment in which to learn and excel.

Infrastructure is the backbone of any educational institution, and this proposal includes provisions for roof replacements and IT upgrades. These improvements will ensure that our school facilities remain in top condition and that students have access to cutting-edge technology to prepare them for the future.

Furthermore, the bond proposal includes plans to build new classrooms and a state-of-the-art Independence High School Building. As our community continues to grow, so does the demand for quality education. These additions will accommodate our rising student population, creating optimal learning environments.  Rio Rancho voters have passed these important bonds in years passed to show education is a priority in our community and this has benefitted residents of all ages with a better quality of life.  The Rio Rancho Public Schools bond issue will NOT increase our taxes.  

“The Rio Rancho Regional Chamber of Commerce wholeheartedly supports the $80 million bond proposal for Rio Rancho Public Schools,” stated Dr Stacey Goldstein Dwyer, Board Chairwoman of the Chamber. “This investment aligns with our mission to promote economic growth and prosperity in our community. Well-funded schools attract businesses and families, driving economic development and elevating the quality of life in Rio Rancho.”

We encourage all Rio Rancho residents to join us in supporting this bond proposal on November 7th. It’s a collective investment in the future of our community, ensuring that Rio Rancho remains an attractive place to live, work, and educate our children. Together, we can build a stronger, safer, and more prosperous Rio Rancho.

Please VOTE YES for the Rio Rancho Public Schools Bond on November 7th.
