Thank You

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 rates52-year low

  • Refinanced elementary bond; decreased high school project tax impact
