Ritenour Hosts Public Information Session Feb. 11 about Proposition S Bond Issue
The Ritenour School District will be hosting a Strategic Planning Session 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11 in Ritenour Auditorium at Ritenour High School, 9100 St. Charles Rock Road. The session will focus on Proposition S -- a zero rate change bond issue measure on the April 7 ballot.
Proposition S - a $19.5 million bond issue - would allow the district to address pressing facility and safety needs at all Ritenour schools without increasing the current tax rate.
The session is open to the public.
Ritenour has nearly one million square feet of school facilities with a replacement value of more than $300 million. The average age of Ritenour school buildings is more than 50 years old. These buildings are safe and well-constructed, but require extensive ongoing maintenance, repair and renovations to keep them in good condition. Because of solid financial management and a recent increase in property values, Ritenour can make these repairs and renovations with a bond issue that does not raise the current debt service tax rate for district residents.
