2010 Bond and Mill

PSD Promises website shows how funds are spent

In 2010, voters approved a mill levy and bond issue. Bond funds are one-time dollars that allow the district to maintain excellent facilities critical to providing a positive learning environment. Schools receive mill levy funds each year to support student instruction in several ways.

The PSD Promises online publication takes you on a deep dive through the bond-funded construction projects, new technology initiatives, and special projects teachers created using grants funded by the 2010 mill levy override. 

 

2010 Mill Levy Use Plan

The mill levy will provide $16 million annually to meet expenses of the district caused by state revenue cutbacks, including:

  • Increase budget allocations to schools to maintain excellence for student academic achievement and interventions, and provide resources for preschool, whole child, career awareness and wellness.
  • Restore a portion of staff positions eliminated by state revenue cutbacks and limit class size increases
  • Refresh technology and provide technology support for student learning opportunities
  • Provide skills for workforce development and college readiness to support economic growth
