This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $49 million in order to help modernize renovate the current middle and elementary school's facilities as well as purchase land for future school sites and upgrade technology throughout the district as needed.[2] School officials had said that in the long run it would cost more to maintain and run the current school facilities than building new ones. If this had been approved, the school district would have also been able to get money from the state to help with the building costs. School officials also noted that taxes would not increase but would just remain constant at their current rate.[3] Those against the measure noted that the information is inaccurate so residents should not support the effort.[4]
