From the Superintendent's Desk

Dear Families,


After the “Securing Our Future Sinking Fund” proposal was narrowly defeated in November, numerous parents and district stakeholders contacted the Board of Education and me to express disappointment that the proposal did not pass. Their feedback also included the need for a more substantial investment in security and a desire for enhanced instructional and extracurricular opportunities that were not included in the original proposal. Using this input, the Board of Education and district administration reviewed our 10-year capital needs plan and the desired safety improvements to develop a Capital Improvements and Building Security bond proposal. This proposal includes the capital improvement needs outlined in the sinking fund as well as items such as adding a secure entry vestibule to each building, upgrading all internal door locks to allow for an instant lockdown at the push of a button, redesigned learning spaces and Makerspaces in each building, and several athletic enhancements. The way this proposal has been structured, district taxpayers would not see an increase in the debt levy. In fact, if voters approve this bond proposal, our district debt levy will drop from 6.3 mills to 6.2 mills this summer.  To date, the Board of Education has approved the bond proposal language and application. The next step is for the Board of Education to call for an election, which they will take action on at the February board meeting. Once we have officially called for an election, we will be launching efforts to inform our community about this proposal.
