Capital Project

Voters approved a $39 million capital project on May 16, 2017 to improve aging infrastructure across the school district. The plan includes replacement of aging systems, safety and health improvements and updated technology and instructional classroom space. More information.


Cost of the Capital Project

The $39,796,042 capital project will have no additional local tax impact. The district will be reimbursed for approximately 72% of all eligible projects, and the local share of the cost will be tax neutral due to the retirement of district debt following the 2018-19 school year.

District taxpayers will see no tax impact from the proposed project. Savings from expiring debt will cover all expected project costs disclosed below:

  • No Impact in 2017-2018 and 2018-2019
  • 1.6% of Tax Levy in 2019-2020
  • 2.7% of Tax Levy in 2020-2021 and 2021-2022
  • 2.5% of Tax Levy from 2022-2023 to 2036-2037
  • The savings from retiring bonds (debt obligations) should cover the net impact of this proposed project. Therefore, there will be no additional tax impact.

How does 1.6% of tax levy relate to me?
A house with an assessed value of $300,000 would see an annual increase in taxes of $83.52/year or $1.61/week. However, the financial impact to taxpayers will be eliminated when debt is retired following the 2018-19 school year.
