If passed, the rate would increase .54 cents on the current rate the citizens pay on the bond levy from the year 2000.
This will bring the total amount paid on an average assessed home of $200,000 to $298. This is NOT an increase of $298.
The School Board made a conscious effort to propose the smallest increase necessary of the current rate for the needed improvements.
No bond money will be spent for deferred maintenance:
The School Board was adamant about not passing on deferred maintenance to the voters and citizens of our district.
Instead, they chose to eliminate millions of dollars from the original bond figure recommendation. No monies raised from this bond will go to deferred maintenance. The district has a detailed facility plan to address deferred maintenance, which does not include bond monies.
