Referendum

Update (05/06/15)Voters Approve Referendum

Voters approved the New Prague Area Schools bond referendum request on May 5th by a 1,950-948 margin. The referendum information will remain on the website for community members to reference.

Facilities for Learning

The New Prague Area School Board approved a resolution setting a $58.48 million bond referendum for Tuesday, May 5, 2015. This will address future needs of the school district and follows a recommendation made by a 33 member community Facilities Task Force. This was a community driven process that addresses the facility needs of our district. The one question referendum will pay for an addition and renovation to the current Middle School building, renovation of the current Central Education Campus building, a demolition of the 1923 portion of the Central Education Campus building, a swimming pool addition to the Central Education Campus, deferred maintenance, and an addition to the Transportation building.

If voters approve the question, the owner of a $200,000 home would see a tax increase of approximately $8 per month ($97 annually). This bond would be paid out over 20 years and would be fully paid in 2036.
