The Board of Education issued a Resolution of Necessity to place a combined operating levy and bond issue on the May 7, 2019 ballot. Issue 5 issue will replace the 2014, 6.68-mill levy that expires at the end of the calendar year with a 6.1 mill operating levy – that will not increase taxes. The new operating levy replaces the five-year levy that will expire in December with a continuing operating levy that will fund ongoing day-to-day operation of our schools.
In addition, a 37-year, 4.72 mill bond issue will allow our community to take advantage of more than $65 million in state matching funds to replace our deteriorating and overcrowded schools that are serving our youngest learners. It will allow our community to build and equip three, new pre-K through 6th-grade elementary schools and one new middle school for grades seven and eight.
