REQUEST A YARD SIGN
The Bond & Override Moves Madison Forward!
On November 5th, 2019 Madison School District is seeking voter approval for bond & override measures. A bond is a fiscally responsible financing tool used by schools to fund projects that have a long lifespan – and it doesn’t raise your tax rates. A maintenance and operations override helps school districts pay for things such as teacher salaries, classroom supplies, and transportation. This year’s request is simply an extension of the override voters already approved in 2015.

WHY VOTE YES
Students, teachers, and parents all deserve to be safe and secure while at school. A YES vote will centralize security across all campuses and improve communication systems. Interior and exterior windows and doors will be secured, and fences will be replaced.
Invest in Teachers
Our teachers are the backbone of our schools. A YES vote will allow our district to recruit and retain highly qualified teachers by being able to offer competitive salaries and support services.
To ensure our kids have modern technology at their fingertips, a YES vote would fund needed network upgrades and keep the tablets and pads current.
A Program for Every Student
Programs like International Baccalaureate, Spanish Immersion, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) and REACH (Rigorous, Enriched, Accelerated Curriculum for the Highly Gifted) will continue to be funded with your YES vote.
Improve Traffic Flow
Pickup and dropoff congestion will be eased through infrastructure upgrades that will help improve traffic flow around certain schools. Vote YES to see these improvements made.
A YES vote will help fund innovative and effective classrooms that are highly energy-efficient and designed to ensure today's learners are well-prepared for the opportunities of tomorrow.
