3E - Mill Levy Override

Shall School District 11 taxes be increased $42 million dollars annually which shall be used to fund educational needs including but not limited to:

  • Attracting and retaining high quality teachers and support staff, not to include administrators, by offering salaries and benefits that are competitive with other school districts;
  • Extending the life of existing schools by repairing, maintaining, and modernizing aging buildings;
  • Expanding technology access to more students by upgrading and replacing outdated computers and equipment;
  • Improving student safety and security by adding a school resource officer at every middle school;
  • Supporting student success by providing more school counselors, nurses, psychologists, or social workers; and
  • Reducing long-term interest costs by paying off existing debt sooner;

The district shall ensure accountability with a Citizens Oversight Committee which shall annually review and report to the public on the use of funds; for 2019 and thereafter shall such revenues be adjusted annually for inflation; and shall the district be allowed to collect, retain and spend the full amount of these revenues as a voter approved revenue change and shall the mill levy authorized by this question be excluded from previous limits which would otherwise apply?
