Thursday night’s Shelton School District Community Forum focused on the District’s February 14, 2017 bond and levy election. Superintendent Dr. Alex Apostle summarized the $64,778,906 construction bond which would pay for necessary improvements to all schools in the District including a new addition to the high school and a new Mountain View Elementary. The rate per thousand of assessed value for the bond is estimated to be $1.81.
The levy is a three-year levy to replace the District’s current levy that expires at the end of next year. The amounts for each year would be $7.33 Million which equates to $4.38 per thousand of assessed value in 2018, $4.34 per thousand in 2019, and $4.29 per thousand in 2020.
Dr. Apostle also discussed the recent attempted abduction near Mt. View Elementary and told those in attendance the District will be hiring a Director of Safety and Security.
