Strong communities have strong schools that attract families into the community. By investing in our children and our schools, we ensure a vibrant community for generations to come. With access to more teachers, smaller class sizes, more career technical education, and more opportunities to earn college credit while still in high school, our Bluejacket graduates will be better prepared to fill critical roles and workforce shortages in our communities.
As our community grows, there are more properties that contribute to the tax base, spreading costs for schools, city and counties across more people. And if the proposed referendum is approved by voters, the School Board is committed to make reductions in other tax levies, which will reduce the tax impact from the proposed referendum.
