    Bond Issue - Informational Only

    Important Dates:

    October 17 - Voter Registration Deadline

    Rose Hill Schools’ Board of Education has embarked on a $10M bond project.  All projects are to be completed by the Fall of 2019.  The election for this bond is scheduled for November 7th.  

     

    The bond project proposal began as a discussion of the Board about reinvesting the savings acquired from the refinancing of our current bonds.  Our Bond Council took the refinancing savings and wrapped it around our current bond payments and determined that the Board could offer $10M worth of projects for a zero mil rate increase to the patrons of USD 394.  Maintaining the same tax rate was an important component for the Board.  

     

    The Board then worked with architects to determine cost of projects to be included in the bond proposal.  They began with projects that remained on the capital improvement list that were not addressed with the last district bond project.  Projects included also address efficiencies to include some cost savings; some safety measures within the district; and support for the Board’s goal of providing innovative program offerings.  

     

    The district will hold informational meetings at the high school beginning at 7pm on Thursday, October 19th, and Monday, October 30th.  

     

    Projects include:

  • School Perception Survey

     

    Dear Parent:


    The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) is currently working with each
    school district in Kansas on a new accreditation model. KESA (Kansas Education
    System of Accreditation) is a 5-year process for districts to gather information, pick goals
    and work on those goals.


    One part of the process is to gather information related to your perceptions of the climate
    at your child’s school, in an electronic survey format. The survey will take approximately
    15 minutes to complete. The window for parents to respond is October 16 th -26 th , 2017.
    Your participation in this survey will help USD 394 gain a better understanding of how
    our school programs are working to benefit students, teachers, schools, and the district.
    There are no risks involved in survey participation. Your responses will be used only for
    statistical purposes. Your identity will not be associated with the responses you provide.
    The reports we prepare for this study will not identify you in any way.
