Dysart Unified bond, override election settled Nov. 5

District asking for $152 million for upgrades


It’s election time again for the Dysart Unified School District.

The district is asking for a $152 million bond to fund safety and security upgrades (52%), buses (8%), technology, school renovations, land for a new high school and construction of two elementary schools (35%).

The bond’s tax impact will be about $10.88 a month for a home with an average assessed value of $153,580.

A 15% override is also on the table that would maintain funding for programs currently serving Dysart students such as arts, P.E. and athletics as well as academic support programs for math and reading.

That override has been in place since 2000.

Because it’s the only thing on a ballot this fall, all voting on the Tuesday, Nov. 5 bond and override issues will be done through the mail.

The means residents only have a few more days to get their ballot in the mail to be counted in time.
