Phase II Projects include: construction of a new district indoor activities center, relocation and renovation of the high school art and industrial tech classrooms, energy efficiency upgrades at the elementary school, district-wide upgrades for security and technology, and classroom furniture updates K-12 to meet the needs of our 21st century learners.
The referendum would have a neutral impact on the school tax rate. The current school property tax rate already includes the $4.05 Debt Service levy amount previously approved by district patrons. The district currently has one of the lowest tax rates among local school districts and has lowered our tax rate by $3.11 over the past eight years.
District voters will have two opportunities to vote on the bond referendum. On March 7th, voters will have an opportunity for satellite absentee voting from 1:30-7:30 at the Family Life Center, and on April 3rd during the special election. If approved, construction on the district indoor activities center would begin in the fall of 2018 with completion of all projects by the fall of 2021.
The district will be hosting community informational meetings at 6:00 in the district board room on the following dates: February 27th, March 5th, and March 29th. For more information, visit the district website page on the bond referendum.
