Voters Passed a $59 million Bond Election in June 0f 2015. Projects are underway across the district to make renovations and improvements, including but not limited to infrastructure upgrades, secure entries, and storm shelters to the District’s facilities. The cost of the projects will be payable from proceeds of the bonds in an amount not to exceed $59,000,000. Current state finance formula allows additional state aid to pay 65% of the project and interest cost on a voted bond issue. This additional state aid will allow the district to keep its local property tax mill rate flat. Visit the Bond Construction page for updates....
