This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $61.55 million, adding a levy at a rate around 4.1 mills, in order to help pay for construction and renovation projects in the school district.[2] If this had been approved, the school district would have also received around $27 million from the state to help with construction projects. School officials noted the larger class sizes as the main reason behind needing larger school buildings. School enrollment has been consistently increasing leading the current facilities unable to accommodate all the students. Adding updated technology to the new schools would also have benefited the students.[3]
