The Need 
21.16 million dollar school bond issue
in building/transportation bonds for 
Catoosa Public Schools

Bond proceeds enable us to continue to upgrade the technology system
throughout the 
district and continue to upgrade existing school facilities.
No projected tax increase!

 



 

What will the Election provide for our schools?

As part of our long-range and current plans for capital improvements, a Bond Election will be presented to the Catoosa Public School community on November 12. This Bond Election will provide needed funding for the residents of Catoosa to invest in our children’s education.

 

 

 



 



 

WHY NOW?

The residents of Catoosa have recognized the urgency to improve facilities and enhance programs in order to remain a leader in 21st Century Learning. Now is the best time to make this investment. The improvements and upgrades will replace current facility restraints in addition to providing advanced technology. This will complete the final phase of the original 3 phase project that began in 2008.

 

 

 





What will our investment be?

Projects will be financed through the issuance of $21.16 million, in building/transportation bonds. The bond issue is NOT projected to increase taxes.
