Crook County Passes Bond Measure
On May 21st, Crook County voters passed a bond measure designed to improve the quality of the CCSD school buildings. The Bond will provide for the construction of a brand new elementary school as well as maintenance and safety improvements for all of the current buildings
The main goal of the School Bond is to enhance the safety, accessibility and overall quality of schools in the Crook County School District.
“Out of all the schools buildings in the District, over half are more than 50 years old. Many of these buildings are in need of repair and updates for future use,” said Crook County School District Superintendent Duane Yecha. “This is a big step for children and education in our community and we are looking forward to improving the learning environment for our students.
The Bond totals $33.5 million, and the goal is to keep it to a level more or less equal to the current property tax rate of $1.03 per $1,000 of assessed property value.
