|Board to Decide on Referendum
At 19 of 20 District 200 schools, we have significant facility needs. For the past 18+ months, the Board of Education has developed a Facility Master Plan and has worked to prioritize projects, determine how to fund the projects and plan for future facility needs. Watch this video for more information.
The Board of Education will decide this coming Wednesday if they will place a question on the April 4 ballot. The upcoming Board Meeting agenda is available online.
At their December 8 meeting, the Board conducted a final review of the following:
Needed repairs, renovations and upgrades to 19 of our 20 schools will cost $154.5 million. The proposed ballot question seeks to issue $132.5 million in bonds. The Board would commit to fund the remaining $22 million in work out of reserves and future budgets.
The proposed bond measure would cost the owner of a median home an additional $180 per year in taxes on the Bond & Interest portion of their tax bill.
To plan for the future, the Board is expected to vote on policy 4.152 at their next meeting as well. The resolution calls for the Board to utilize a research-based model that forecasts and calculates capital renewal costs over the life of a building. While the Board has maintained a Capital Development planning tool for several years, the resolution makes a commitment to continue maintenance of the capital projects document and also budget annually for these projects.
