Voter-approved 2016?bond and mill levy override

The $375 million bond?pays for building?three new schools,?an athletics complex, transportation maintenance facility, and an addition to Zach Elementary School. The bond also funds $40 million of improvements to existing schools. The $8 million mill levy override pays for?operating costs of the new buildings, as well as technology refresh and other materials and operating costs associated with growth.

The?new schools and facilities improvements are part of the district's long-range plan to accommodate anticipated student growth over the next few years. ?Court cases delayed the?work, but ║┌┴¤═°ultimately prevailed in litigation in fall 2018.
