For the majority of school bond proposals, one of the major parts of the informational campaign is centered on cost to individual homeowners. Generally, school districts give voters access to a bond calculator that will show them how much additional they will pay on their property taxes if the school bond proposal were to pass.
Here’s the best news: You won’t see a bond calculator, because our proposal does not increase the current tax rate for property owners in the District.
This is a zero-tax-increase school bond that, in essence, is more like a renewal. It is a continuation of the current rate for nine additional years. Passage would allow the District to address both long-term and critical needs that have accumulated over the years since the last successful bond proposal passage in 2007 (also a zero-tax-increase bond).
This bond would provide approximately $44 million in funding for improvement projects across the District (increased security, new paving, roofs, heating and cooling improvements, etc.).
