BOND WOULD NOT RAISE CURRENT TAX RATE

On Tuesday, March 14, 2017 Boise School District will hold a bond election to reinvest in our neighborhood schools and community with no increase in the current property tax rate.

The District is able to raise $172.5 million WITHOUT increasing the current property tax rate for property owners due to:


  • Sound financial management and long-term planning

  • Rising property values in Boise

  • The expiration of the 2012 levy and 1996 bond

  • The restructuring of other long-term debt


The bond addresses overcrowding, outdated and aging facilities, and gives students access to modern classrooms and schools that reflect best practices in education and technology - ensuring students graduate college and career ready.
