Thank you voters for your continued support! The bond on Nov. 5, 2013 passed with 66 percent approval.
Funding for school construction, facility improvements, and property purchases mostly comes from local voters through bond elections. This is separate from the district's general fund and by law, cannot be used for day-to-day operations or to address budget shortfalls. Funding for staffing to operate schools comes from the district's general fund.
*These are estimates. Timelines will be adjusted as needed.
