School bond and tax votes

See also: School bond and tax elections in Alaska

Alaska is one of nine states along with the District of Columbia that do not require elections for school bond and tax votes. All bonding for new projects are considered by the Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development. All bonds and major maintenance grants are awarded through two funds that are for new bonds and major renovations. How revenue is made into the funds is proceeds from general issue bond sales along with legislative appropriation every fiscal cycle. Each school district must justify the need for the bonds along with a multi-year capital improvement plan. The State Department of Education has the authority to approve or deny part or all of an application.
