Tea school district residents to vote on bond
TEA (AP) — Residents of the Tea Area School District will get the chance to vote in December on a $10.5 million bond that would be used for three school projects.
The Argus Leader reports (http://argusne.ws/18e7kZp ) the bond levy, if passed, initially would cost homeowners in the district about $1.36 per each $1,000 of their home's value each year.
But Board President John Herr says the levy amount won't change much because of higher valuations and an increased cost to borrow the money.
The money would be used to add on to the current elementary school, build a new elementary school on the north end of the district and help complete some of the performing arts center, which would be attached to the middle and high school.
