On April 4, Bowling Green R-1 Schools will ask voters to consider a request to issue general obligation bonds in the amount of $8.75 million for the purpose of completing projects that will impact all schools in the district.
If voters approve the request, there will be no increase to the district’s debt service property tax levy, which is currently 50 cents per $100 of assessed valuation of real estate and personal property.
The critical projects to be funded by Proposition S were recommended by our Key Communicator group and responses from our Community Survey. The Board of Education studied the results of these feedback processes and the needs of all district facilities and prioritized these projects to provide quality learning environments for all students and to enhance the safety and security of schools.
