Program Update

The Bond Committee,  made up of a wide cross-section of the Ashland community, worked to review the needs of the school  district, related to the following goals:

  • Increase or improve health and safety
  • Prioritize flexibility and adaptability
  • Be sustainable and energy efficient
  • Promote inclusiveness
  • Promote financial stewardship
  • Standardize facility systems
  • Plan for the future

Cost Information: As with prior District bonds, the projected levy rate resulting from the District bonds is estimated to be at or below $2.00 per $1,000 of taxable assessed value. After thirteen years, the projected levy rate is estimated to reduce to $1.00 per $1,000 for the following twelve years.

Actual levy rates may differ due to actual interest rates and changes in taxable assessed values over the life of the bond.
