BUILDING EXCELLENCE REFERENDUM

Bond

 

Welcome to the Referendum Page

The Board of Education is holding a Referendum, on September 28, 2021, to ask local voters in Audubon to authorize the District to raise funds through the sale of bonds to finance a Health, Safety and Modernization Improvements Program to all three of our school buildings. We are proposing a Referendum with two questions.  The $28.54 million Question 1, must be approved in order to approve Question 2.  Question 2 is $3.24 and the two together total $31.78.  Also if both questions are approved the state aid is over $12 million.   This “Building Excellence” proposal meets the aspirations of the community and the educational needs of our students. This program of building excellence has a positive impact at each grade level and, most importantly, will protect our school investments for years to come.   This webpage is your source for detailed information.  Please read the reports and view the media to become informed about all aspects of the Referendum.
