Bond Issue on April 5 Ballot

Ray-Pec voters on April 5, 2016, will consider a $27 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue to address space needs throughout the District. The plan includes constructing an addition onto the south high school to accommodate all students in grades 9-12 in one school.

The Board on Dec. 17, 2015, unanimously approved placing the bond issue on the ballot. The general obligation bond issue is necessary to fund the improvements outlined in the District’s Long Range Facility Plan. In introducing the measure, Superintendent Dr. Kari Monsees emphasized that the bond issue will not require an increase in the tax levy.

In addition to the high school expansion, other elements of the plan include:

  • North high school building becomes second middle school
  • Modifications to Bridle Ridge and Eagle Glen to serve grades K-5
  • Convert Shull Elementary into an Early Childhood Center
  • Maintenance projects throughout the District

The Long Range Facility Plan, which was unanimously approved by the Board on Sept. 24 after a yearlong development process, addresses the majority of space needs anticipated by the District over the next 8 to 10 years. The plan includes the most aggressive timeline possible to resolve the two-building high school situation.

Turn in Box Top & UPC Labels by February 12


Our PTA receives a 10 cent reimbursement for every properly cut, non-expired UPC Box Top donated.

Please send Box Top and UPC labels from Campbells, Tyson, Prego, V8, Pace and Best Choice in Ziploc baggies to school with your child's name and teacher's name written on the baggie.

Please remember to cut out labels along the dotted lines. This enables PTA to receive your labels and send them immediately for reimbursement without having to spend additional time cutting around the dotted lines of each label.
