Bonds & Levies

We are able to offer programs and opportunities beyond the basic educational experience in growing schools and facilities thanks to the generous support of our community.

Voters have consistently approved bonds that maintain, enhance and build schools throughout the district as well as levies that pay for those services and needs in our schools not funded by state education dollars.
