Ballot measure 24-429 is a general obligation bond on the May 15 ballot for school construction and renovations to address overcrowding and safety in Salem-Keizer's schools. 

There are many opportunities coming up in the next few weeks to learn about the proposed six hundred nineteen point seven million dollar bond ($619.7 million bond).  Beginning next week, SKPS will be holding Community Meetings at each neighborhood high school, schedule listed below.

Parents, employees, school neighbors and interested community members are welcome to attend.  Information will be shared about proposed bond construction that would be completed at each school if the bond is passed by voters. 
Each meeting will focus on the schools that feed the neighborhood's high school; however, information about all schools in the district will be available.   
List of Meetings (All meetings begin at 6 p.m.)

If passed by voters on May 15, 2018, the proposed $619.7 million bond would increase the current property tax levy rate by an estimated $1.24 per $1,000 of assessed property value.  If the bond does not pass, the additional tax would not be levied and the listed projects would not be completed.  The Community Facilities Task Force reviewed all funding methods available to the district and recommended the School Board place a general obligation bond on the ballot for voters to consider.  The district would receive an $8,000,000 grant from the state I bonds are passed.
