This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $23,600,000 in order to help with furnishing, remodeling and renovating various buildings in the school district.[2] This bond would have extended the current one, making it possible for needed upgrades to occur in the schools. School officials cited old buildings and safety issues as the main concern and need for the further funding. The current $7.59 levy that is in place would have remained for a further eleven years if the measure had been approved. [3] Public forums were held to educate local residents on the issue, hoping that by emphasizing the savings of around $73,000 annually for the district that residents would be more willing to vote in favor of the bond.
