Proposition 1: Promise, Purpose & Progress
PROMISE: Proposition 1 is a $17.9 million no tax increase bond issue for the continuation of capital projects across the district. The District’s long-term plan for facilities requires the use of capital improvement funds that will be made available through the passage of Proposition 1. Capital funds are limited due to the fact that 95% of the operational budget expenditures are committed to personnel, purchased services (i.e., utilities), and supplies.
PURPOSE: Funds generated by passage of Proposition 1 will be used for capital expenditures such as a major school addition to Zitzman Elementary, roofing and HVAC needs at multiple buildings, safety/security upgrades at all schools, technology upgrades, school buses, STEM labs, and other facility improvements.
PROGRESS: The largest project is the expansion of Zitzman, which will include a beautiful new main entrance facing Indian Pride Drive as well as new kindergarten and first grade classrooms, a full size gymnasium, library expansion, a safe room used as a storm shelter, improved parking and safety and accessibility enhancements. All elementary schools will have improved ADA accessible playgrounds with rubberized surfaces. Improved parking for Nike and Robertsville Schools and a full size track for Riverbend Middle School.
SAFETY: All buildings will have secure vestibules installed that will include electronically controlled entry devices, secured windows and video monitoring. The district will also install improved security measures with video monitoring.
