This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $31 million in order to help pay for additions to current school buildings as well as upgrading technology throughout the district. On average, an addition of $140 would have been added annually to local property taxes to help pay for the bond. While the Superintendent noted that the district was in need of the repairs and upgrades, he also noted that people were already struggling with finances but hoped this would still be seen as something that needs to be done now.[2]
