We appreciate your past support Last year, voters approved a much-needed operating levy increase. This levy helps pay for operational expenses such as utilities, transportation, teacher salaries, and successful academic programs that contribute to recent academic gains.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT & WHY?
Q. What is the 2016 total compared to the 2015 total?
A. The 2016 Bond request is reduced to $10.8 M vs $19.7 M in 2015.
74% less tax impact due to a number of financial factors.
Here is what is different from the 2015 referendum:
Elimination of new gym ($4 million less)
New funding from the state ($2.7 million*)
*Long-term Facilities Maintenance Revenue (LTFMR) with no new taxpayer money
Other project reductions ($1 million less)
Even better interest rates – 52-year low
Refinanced elementary bond; decreased high school project tax impact
