The Board of Education recently approved a series of projects designed to improve energy efficiency, comfort, and safety throughout the District's schools and other facilities. Please click this link to view a Powerpoint presentation which provides a reminder of the facility problems which currently exist and which will be remediated by the upcoming projects.

In the event you missed it, a more descriptive overview of the projects was posted on the District website on February 21st and can be accessed through this link.

The projects will be funded with bond proceeds and money secured through the refinancing of existing bonds ($1.3 million) and the sale of the bus fleet to the Fullington Bus Company (slightly over $200,000). The anticipated millage impact of all projects is .41 mills. For a property owner of a property with a market value of $100,000, .41 mills equates to an increased cost of $10.55 per year.
