School Finance
Budgets, bonds and overrides

The Governing Board is considering placing a bond authorization and an override renewal on the Nov. 2018 ballot. The board would like to gather community feedback prior to making a decision. Conversations about bonds, overrides and district needs will be held in February and March across the district so all school communities have the opportunity to participate. In March, a bond and override advisory committee will meet to develop a recommendation for the Governing Board to consider.
