Thank you voters, 2017 school bond

Anchorage voters approved the 2017 school bond on April 4. The bond package will pay for school building roof and ventilation system repairs, and renovations to the West-Romig library.

Impact to taxpayers


$11.67 per $100,000

proposed bond

-$11.79 per $100,000

bond debt paid off.


The cost to taxpayers on this proposed debt without reimbursement is equivalent to what’s been paid off since 2015 which included state debt reimbursement.


As a result, if this school bond proposition is approved, the tax rate will be lower than the current year's rates. If the bond proposal is not approved, the tax rate also will be lower than the current rate.

Budgeting for maintenance work

ASD has more than 7.8 million square feet in facilities and budgets nearly $21 million for annual building maintenance and preventive maintenance. Additionally, the District is investing $6 million in energy efficiencies, funding $500,000 for seismic/structural improvements at Central Middle School, and $1.3 million for a waterline replacement at a middle school. These projects are to address safety concerns. By covering the costs with bonding, the District will avoid having to cover the costs with its operating budget.
