School Schedule Might Need Change
Posted: September 15, 2013 at 5 a.m.
Those campaigning for the School Board’s millage increase proposal are concentrating more on spreading the facts about the second high school issue and less on what will happen if voters reject it.
At A Glance
The School Board has proposed building a second high school with a capacity of 2,250 students on Gamble Road in Centerton. The cost is $86 million. The state has pledged to contribute $13 million if voters approve the 2.9-mill tax increase on Tuesday’s ballot. The owner of a $100,000 home would pay about $60 in additional taxes per year.
Early voting is available at the Benton County clerk’s offices in Bentonville, Rogers and Siloam Springs from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday. Polls will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
