School Bond Referrendum

Bond Issue for Facility Renovations

The Board of Education has approved a bond referendum election to address facility needs.  The total amount of the proposed referendum is $19,635,000.  The ballot question will be on the May 10th, 2016 Primary Election.

Over the last 36+ months, the Board of Education has been reviewing district facilities to gain an understanding of the current and future needs that must be met to support the infrastructure and operational functions of the school district.  The Board classified the needs in the following three areas:

Building and Site Infrastructure: Includes items such as roofs, windows, doors, floor coverings, space utilization, casework, and finishes. It also includes Krantz Field, a separate soccer competition field, and associated practice areas at the Otte-Blair Middle School site.

Safety and Security: Includes secured exterior entries, the ability to lock and control all interior doors, electronic surveillance and area control, front office locations, fire panel updates, and other security measures.

Building Systems: Includes electrical, lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), plumbing, and data networking.

The Board of Education held public informational sessions on January 7, January 12, and Janiary 19 to share information and gain input from district patrons.  At a Special Meeting of the Board of Education held on February 23, 2016, the Board of Education voted unanimously to seek the bond issue referendum vote.
