What happens if the bond does not pass?
The projects for the August 2019 bond were identified as the key next steps of the District's 12-year facilities plan. If the bond does not pass, the School Board and administration will work together to identify what needs to happen next to address these needs.
It is possible that the Board could approve a resolution to present the same bond to our patrons at a later date. This is especially true if there is strong support for this bond, but it still falls short of the 2/3 minimum super-majority required for passage.
If there is an evident lack of support for this bond, then the Board and administration will develop a plan to learn what patrons' concerns are with these projects and discuss ways to meet the needs of our schools until a bond can be passed. The steps that we have taken in the past to address growing enrollment include shifting school boundaries to move students into less crowded schools and purchasing temporary classrooms.
