No-Tax-Increase Bond Issue
Over the last several years, the Lincoln County R-III School District has seen consistent evidence that supports a continued increase in enrollment. At this time, it has become clear that our K-5 and 6-8 schools will reach maximum capacity and be in need of additional building space to support the education of our students as early as the 2023-2024 school year.
To support the educational needs of our growing community, the Board of Education, at their regularly scheduled January 11, 2022 meeting, voted to place a no-tax-increase bond issue on the April 5, 2022, ballot. If approved by our voters, this $37 million no-tax-increase bond issuance will allow the District to develop, construct, equip, and furnish an eighth elementary school building near Troy South Middle School. These funds would also allow the expansion of Troy South Middle School and New Horizons High School. Other projects would include; paving parking lots, driveways, and other areas, as needed; developing and securing additional building sites for the Troy Buchanan High School Construction Trades Program; resurfacing the Troy Buchanan High School Track; to the extent funds are available, improvements to the outdoor instructional and athletic facilities in the District; completion of other repairs and improvements to the existing facilities of the District. Please explore the following pages to learn more about what this no-tax-increase bond can provide for the Lincoln County R-III School District.
Vote April 5, 2022. Every vote matters.
