1 Long Range Master Facility Planning Committee NSSD Construction Bond April 2012

2 2 Budget Philosophy and Update My personal philosophy as a superintendent –School districts will develop to their fullest potential only with stability over the long term –It is the board and superintendent’s job to create this stability –Great programs without an approach to how the district will sustain them will inevitably result in loss of programs in a downturn –To achieve that, school districts must plan for the long-term and realistically account for the entire business cycle –For the second year in a row, the NSSD will have a full calendar year. No layoffs or program cuts this year. –We believe we are sustainable at this level given current levels of economic growth.

3 3 Community Engagement Philosophy: The district will only reach its fullest potential through consistent efforts to engage with the broader community— not just current school parents The district must work with other local government agencies to balance needs to build the best communities

4 4 What is the LRFMP? Long Range Facility Master Plan –Plans for district construction,maintenance and population growth needs for 15-20 years –Is based on sound information PSU population study Heery and Associates Facility Condition Assessment Seattle NW Securities Bonding Estimates

6 6 Some history… The NSSD has proposed bonds several times in the last few years Nov. 2004 $38.2 million Sept. 2005 $38.2 million Nov. 2006 $50 million Nov. 2008 $44 million Tax rate on the four proposals has been approximately $3 per $1000 of assessed value None have been successful with voters

7 7 Pertinent Facts The current bond passed in 1994 will be paid off in 2013—the district’s construction bond rate will be zero The 1994 bond when first assessed cost $1.70 per thousand dollars. –It has been reduced due to growth and the district twice has re-financed to lower interest rates –In the 2011 and 2012 years, the tax rate on the bond has been $.68 per thousand

8 8 What’s in the current bond proposal $22.6 million, $1.26 per thousand $3.6 million dollars to re-design and re-model SHS Auditorium & Foyer $3.2 million in seismic (earthquake) upgrades in all buildings $1.9 million multi-purpose room/bldg SES to separate gym and cafeteria function Remove and Replace 600 building @ SHS (portable on east end of campus) 2 KG Classrooms @ SES 1 KG Classroom at Sublimity Note (Mari-Linn will not need extra KG classroom) Re-Model of Science area @ SHS to provide adequate exits

9 9 What’s in the bond—Overview Moves building roofs to 30-year materials (some are already improved) Re-design of parking, bus lane and pedestrian crosswalks at SMS H-VAC Heating system (Furnace) at M-L Windows at Sub, M-L and SES Re-surfacing of parking lots @ some schools $2.3 million in Heating & Air Flow system improvements in all buildings Painting of all district schools

10 10 Additional Information A Citizen Oversight Committee will meet regularly to oversee the bond The bond will focus on maintaining and upgrading current facilities The Superintendent and Board look at the bond as an opportunity to earn the community’s trust through the complete process

11 11 Current bond proposal costs $.68 current bond costs would be replaced by a $1.26 bond This would be an increase of $.58 per $1000 of assessed value Home valueCost increase per year $100,000 $58 $150,000 $87 $200,000$116

12 12 Comparing 1996 and 2012 Portland/Salem Consumer Price Index shows a 43.8% increase in the cost of living since 1996. (What cost $1 then now costs $1.44) $1.26 per thousand now is equal to $.87 in 1996. Or…$1.70 then would equal $2.44 now

13 13 Property taxes in Oregon as a percent of income

14 14 Where we are right now On April 18, the LRFMP Committee reviewed survey results and recommended to the board that the bond proposal be placed on the ballot in November 2012 The board will receive the recommendations but will not actively vote to submit the bond until August (we are restricted in our communications once we formally vote to submit a bond for election)

15 15 Last Thoughts The NSSD School Board has been in attendance throughout the process The board has worked together with the committee, occasionally giving comment The committee members were exceptional in their willingness to hear all viewpoints The board and myself are willing to continue to hear comments, concerns and ideas
