  • YES 9,332 (65.48%)Approveda
  • NO 4,919 (34.52%)[1]

This measure sought to approve a $16 million bond which will go mainly towards replacing modular classrooms but also towards replacing the cafeteria and upgrading the heating and cooling systems. Taxes will not increase due to a previous bond being paid off so the current tax rate will just be continued for further years.[2] School officials had written up a pamphlet which explained the needs of the school, what the bond money will be used for and how residents will be affected. Officials also held open houses at different times to help educate voters in the hope that the more they know the more likely they would approve the measure.

A budget override measure will also be voted on in the school district at the same time. Also to help further fund school projects and programs.[3]
