  • District-wide Bathrooms                                                                               
  • Technology Infrastructure                                                                 
  • Replace/rebuild AMS South at size appropriate to number of students served
  • Accessibility and flexibility upgrades for AHS Humanities and Science Buildings
  • Seismic Upgrades for AHS Humanities and Science Buildings       
  • Comprehensive renovation at Walker (and reconfigured point of entry)
  • Seismic Upgrades for Walker                                                                        
  • Redesigned Helman classroom wing, entry, and secure circulation 
  • Renovate Helman Quad C     
  • Seismic Upgrades for Helman           

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.
