What was at stake?

Issues in the district

$775 million bond on the May 2014 ballot

Voters approved a $775 million bond in the May 10, 2014 election. This package will expand classroom capacity to 66,000 students and add 14 new schools to the district. The final proposal was increased $17 million from an earlier draft due to higher costs for local land purchases. District officials noted that the package includes $665.7 million for facilities, $103.2 million for instructional services and $6.1 million for special programs. The bond package increases the debt service tax rate of local property owners to 50 cents per $100 of assessed value, which is the highest rate allowed by state law.[3]

Local activist Tom Fabry led opposition to the May bond vote. Fabry opposed the district's efforts to raise debt service to state limits. He also believed that the bond package could be smaller by eliminating technology and other rapidly depreciating assets. District officials countered that the district's rapid growth necessitates a large-scale investment in new facilities.[4]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[8]
