Question from the community about Build 2170. Q. How can the district afford to build a new building when the district has a budget deficit? A. The building referendum monies can only be used to build the building and cannot be used for staff or other operating costs. Think of it as two separate bank accounts. The district will have one bank account to build the new building and one bank account to pay for staff and other operating expenses. view image

Question from the community about Build 2170. Q. Why does the school district want one building? A. It is not affordable to continue operating three separate buildings. If we do not streamline operations and become more efficient, the district could go into statutory operating debt in the near future. For example, the district could reduce expenditures of over $200,000 a year just in transportation and staffing. view image
