Tempe Union High School District Bond/Override Facts

Why does the District need a Bond and M&O Override?

The State of Arizona allocates funds for school districts based on a set formula.

School districts are allowed to go to their constituents to request additional funds to supplement these allocations.

Tempe Union is asking its voters to approve a Maintenance & Operations Override and to authorize the sale of general obligation Bonds in the November 2012 election.

The District recognizes that our community has made a significant investment to ensure that its students have every opportunity to achieve their educational goals.

TUHSD’s vision is to transform the structure of our schools to meet the needs of the ever-changing world. The District now has the option to request override approval up to 15% from the 10% override currently in place.

The 5% increase will give the District an additional $3.3 million to fund programs supporting student achievement, increasing graduation rates and preparation of students for the 21st century work force and post-secondary education.

TUHSD takes very seriously its responsibility of ensuring facilities are well maintained and function at optimal levels to provide a healthy learning environment for students and staff and to protect the public’s investment.

Voters will be asked to approve $75,000,000 in Bonds to address facility
