This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $46.8 million in order to help pay for capital improvements to school facilities as well as buying land for educational facilities and develop a play field for the district.[2] The school district noted in their official bond information fact sheet that the board had decided to pursue this goal now because of the low cost of construction currently, the age of current facilities and also the low costs of interest rates on bonds. On average, homeowners would have seen an increase in their property taxes in the amount of $.79 per $1,000 of assessed property value a month.[3]
