The Waukee Board of Education is calling for a special election to fund construction of a new elementary school at the intersection of Dartmoor and Douglas Parkway in Waukee.
Please mark your calendars to vote on February 4, 2014. You can also vote by absentee ballot.
Waukee Community District continues to be the fastest growing district in Iowa. For more than ten years we have averaged more than 470 new students per year with about half of those at the elementary level. This rapid growth has required new facilities to avoid school overcrowding.
Increased enrollment is not dependent on the availability of facilities. Building needs will continue to increase with time and potentially cost more to solve if delayed.
Approval of this referendum will NOT raise taxes. The school levy portion of property taxes would remain unchanged at $16.58. (The school district does not set any other tax rates.)
Please share this information with others and encourage them to save-the-date. Share on twitter by using #BondFeb4.
If you are interested in receiving an absentee ballot, please fill out the request form and mail to: Auditor, 910 Court Street, Adel, IA 50003
We will continue to reach out to you in the coming weeks with reminders. For more information click here.
