We may be a small district, but our high school students still need experiential learning opportunities that increase their preparedness for life after graduation. Having the flexible space of a multi-purpose facility will allow our high school staff to add such things as: large group presentations related to health and safety, career and technical education options throughout the county, job fairs, college application/FAFSA nights, fine arts celebrations, large group projects, robotic competitions, music, speech, theatre, debate, and additional P.E. classes. We need space for indoor marching band practice, flag corp practice, sideline cheer and to start a competitive cheer program. It will also be available for after-school programming including various sports team practices. https://youtu.be/MovmSpt-Aok

Why does Galesburg-Augusta need additional classroom space? Additional classroom space at the Primary School means returning 4th grades to the PS and 8th grades to the MS. It will open space back up at the High School for needed programs! https://youtu.be/nLdbAfdhpfI

WHY NOW? The district needs additional space at the Primary School and High School. To reduce class sizes, add programs and reduce overcrowding at the Primary School, the district temporarily moved fourth-grade classrooms into the Middle School and eighth-grade classrooms to the High School. Consequently, these grade shifts created a strain on classroom space at the High School. By creating increased student opportunities, such as our STEAM joint venture with Eaton-Cummins, coding and robotics programs, G-A students will graduate with the skills needed to be successful adults in their careers and communities. The current low-interest rates allow the district to reduce borrowing costs, reducing the millage rate for taxpayers. Visit www.ga-bond.com for details!

Q: Are there still buses in the bond project? A: Yes. Our bus fleet is an aging fleet that requires increasing and costly repairs to keep them safely on the road. ● School buses are expensive, approximately $100,000 per bus. The district has purchased one new bus annually for the past few years. However, the fleet still has an average age over 11 years with high mileage rates--an average of over 121,000 miles. From an operations standpoint, it costs significantly more to maintain older, high-mileage vehicles. Utilizing bond funds to purchase three buses eliminates a significant impact (approximately $300,000), thereby leaving those funds for instruction and the operations of the district. It is important to point out that state statute requires us to pay back enough principal on the bonds to more than cover the cost of buses within a standard useful-life period.
