How would the additional funds raised through a sales tax be used?

    100 percent of the funds would be used to cover the cost of projects in the district’s master facilities plan. The plan identifies safety and security facilities upgrades at every school, major renovations or full school replacements at some schools, and consolidation of schools into more efficient facilities, all constructed to enhance learning and the student experience. The master plan remains in development. It will be completed this summer so that voters can see how each school will benefit with the new revenue. A citizen oversight committee will monitor expenditures of the new revenue to ensure those funds are properly spent on the priorities identified in the master plan.
