You are here: Bond Question
KCHS Class of 2018 06In January 2019, registered voters who reside in Central Schools District will receive a ballot in the mail.  The question on the ballot is whether to replace the capital improvements property tax that is expiring.  If approved, these funds will be used for much needed upkeep, repairs and maintenance for all seventeen schools in the district.  The funds will help the Central Schools to provide safe and highly-qualified places to educate our children.  Because this measure is a reauthorization of an existing bond, voting yes on this measure will not increase your property taxes and will continue to enrich the education of our children by maintaining schools, classrooms, and school grounds. Make your voice heard on this important issue by completing your ballot and returning it in the mail by February 5th.
