District Facility Updates -No Tax Increase Bond 2019
82 % of Center School District voters approved a $48 million no tax increase bond during the April 2, 2019 Election.
The bond will allow Center School District to update: all district buildings to improve student and teacher safety and security, fund infrastructure maintenance projects, build a new Indian Creek Elementary and expand Red Bridge Elementary to accommodate enrollment growth.
The bond will NOT RESULT IN A TAX INCREASE, but will continue the current level of property taxes.

In preparation for the possibility of the bond, the District hosted a Facility Vision committee. The committee was comprised of parents, teachers, administrators, facility employees and members of Hollis and Miller. The group met over several months to assess the current state of Center School District facilities and explore possible options to enhance building safety, security and facility efficiencies that would lend to more flexible learning spaces as include necessary upgrades. The team drafted an official District Facility Audit and presented the report to the Board of Education in September of 2018.
