Wednesday, August 7 is the last day to get an absentee ballot
Early voting at the courthouse on Thursday-Friday, August 8-9, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Tuesday, August 13: Election Day at all district polling places from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

NOTE: The ballot will have two questions: one for $16.065 million and a separate one to provide $1.85 million for buses and other vehicles, since state law requires that transportation bonds be voted on separately.


On Tuesday, August 13, 2019 voters were asked to consider providing a total of $17,915,000 through the end of the 2023 fiscal year. Passage of the bond issue will NOT INCREASE THE TAX RATE; the sinking fund millage will remain the same.

Advancing Excellence
The primary focus of the bond issue is to advance the excellence already established through support from previous bond issues.

Bond Highlights
  • Technology: Extend the successful districtwide Chromebooks initiative through the 2022-23 school year while replacing decade-old electronic whiteboards in all elementary school classrooms with bright touchscreen panels.
  • STEM/Vo-Ag: Build a classroom/shop for the new vocational agriculture program and refresh the K-12 STEM devices and equipment to keep that award-winning program up-to-date.
  • Maintenance and Facilities: Replace climate control systems and elevators that are over 50 years old, along with many other maintenance needs at our school sites, which are 34 to 101 years of age. Also replace the 65-year-old pressbox so it can finally serve community needs, with about 1/3 of its cost paid by private funds.
  • Safety: Extend past safety enhancements which have proven to work, including more cameras, updated entry kiosks, improved doors and locks, and safer pedestrian crossings.
  • Transportation: Replace all buses that are over a decade old to further increase the bus fleet's efficiency and reliability.
