Falcon School District Bond Measure (November 2011)
This measure was defeated
- YES 3,554 (27.36%)
- NO 8,796 (67.64%)
This measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $85 million in order to pay for construction of a new elementary school, remodel the middle and high school facilities and make improvements to technology throughout the district as needed.
School officials noted that with increased student enrollment, over crowding has become a pressing issue and the bond would go towards alleviating that problem. If approved, the local taxes would have been increased by $1.50 per $100,000 of assessed property value. Currently the schools use modular building to deal with overcrowding, with the new buildings these would have no longer been needed.
