The funds raised by the levy will be used in three basic
CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS ON OUTDATED AND DILAPIDATED SCHOOL
FACILITIES AND SYSTEMS WILL BE MADE
• All of the district’s buildings were last renovated in 2001.
• Roofs and boilers are coming to the end of their lifespan.
• Unsafe parking lots, gym floors, playgrounds and other areas put students at risk of injury.
• Just as a house requires renovations, the district needs to maintain its systems.
THE DISTRICT WILL MAINTAIN AND ENHANCE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
TO PREPARE OUR STUDENTS FOR COLLEGE AND CAREERS
• Students need access to more Advanced Placement and College Credit Plus opportunities to remain competitive.
• Programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), music, art, and world languages are in more demand and need to be expanded.
• District technology, textbooks and other materials for instruction must be kept up to date.
IMPROVEMENTS FOR THE DISTRICT IN SAFETY AND SECURITY WILL BE MADE
Based on feedback from community members, it is clear that safety continues to be a top priority of the district in light of recent national events.
Because the levy failed in November, the district lost $7 million that would have been collected in 2019. So, the district will not be doing most of the security items that had been planned, including the building improvements. The board is still discussing what will be done in terms of mental health, etc. and hopes to have that decided soon.
