The Fairfax County Citizens for the 2005 School Bond committee will launch a campaign Wednesday morning to win voter approval Nov. 8 for a $246.3 million school construction financing plan.

Guests scheduled to attend the breakfast event, to be held at the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, include members of the county School Board and Board of Supervisors, members of the chamber's board of directors, school officials, and state and federal elected representatives.

The $246.3 million school bond would fund construction and renovation projects over a five-year period.

The money would pay for a new elementary school at the Coppermine site; renovations to Edison High School and Franklin Sherman, Woodburn, Sleepy Hollow, Freedom Hill, Great Falls, Vienna, Graham Road and Mount Eagle elementary schools; modular additions to Waynewood Elementary School and one other school to be determined; planning for two new elementary schools and renovations at two high schools; and site acquisition.

About $35 million is included in the bond sale to cover infrastructure, such as technology upgrades; roof, air conditioning and boiler replacements; enhanced security; improvements required by the Americans With Disabilities Act; and paving.

The breakfast is from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at 8230 Old Courthouse Rd., Vienna. For more information, call 703-749-0400 or visit
