This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $4 million in order to pay for a new field house, remodel current school buildings, update technology and pay for general improvements in the district as needed. If this had been approved, an additional $3.70 per $1,000 of assessed property value would have been added to the current district property taxes.
