Rock Valley School bond
September 13, 2022 11:11am
Voters in the Rock Valley community school district are going to the polls Tuesday to decide a proposed 25-million-dollar bond issue to address the schools’ space and capacity needs.
The proposal is being brought back before voters after it failed last March. A majority of people did vote for the plan in March, but it failed to get the 60 percent supermajority required for it to pass.
If approved, the project would include construction of a new High School attached to the current school. The addition will include 24 new classrooms and total 82,705 square feet. It would also include the remodeling of the existing middle/high school for larger classrooms for middle school only. It would also include a new 1800-seat competition gym and a two-lane walking track, among other items.
Rock Valley school officials say that if it is approved, the bond would have an estimated property tax impact of $4.05 on every $1,000 of taxable property value. When the state rollback and the Homestead Credit are factored in, they says would lead to an increase of $16.63 per month ($199.58 per year) on a home worth $100,000.
