Make necessary improvement to maintain buildings

Maintain what we have by replacing or upgrading:

  • Roofs
  • Gutters
  • Boilers
  • Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems
  • Exterior wall improvements
  • Fields, playfields and track improvements

Safety, security & accessibility:

  • Upgrade fire alarm panels and fire sprinkler
    systems
  • Improve signage, fencing and gates
  • District-wide accessibility improvements including automatic door openers

Capacity challenges:

  • Add building capacity for increased enrollment
  • Build covered play sheds for elementary schools

Replace old schools well past their lifespan:

  • Complete Phase 2 of Spruce Elementary
  • Oak Heights Elementary

The 2021 Capital Levy would provide $30 million per year for six years.

Cost

If approved, the tax rate would be lower than what voters have approved in the past and would maintain a steady local education tax rate over the next six years. See the Financial Information - 2021 Levy.
