School bond and tax votes

See also: School bond and tax elections in Massachusetts

Massachusetts is one of nine states along with the District of Columbia that do not require elections involving school bonds or taxes. School districts are required to seek approval from the Massachusetts School Building Authority in order to receive any bonding or other aid in completing capital projects. The Commission requires school districts to seek the most cost-efficient proposal possible when considering applications for financing capital projects. A formula is used to determine which districts receive funding. Priority is given to school districts facing overcrowding, building issues, or to be in compliance with a state or federal court order.
