McKinney ISD School Bond 2011

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Why are we cutting staff and budgets while at the same time calling a bond election?<br />Capital funds and operating funds are intended to meet different needs and they are entirely separate funds. By law, the two must be kept in separate accounts and they are audited to ensure each account is spent appropriately.<br />Capital Funds - pay for design, construction, expansion and renovation of schools. The bonds are essentially authorization for the district to borrow the funds.<br />Operating Funds – pay for day-to-day expenses like salaries, supplies, transportation, and utilities. The State funding cuts impact operating funds, not capital funds. <br />
  3. 3. What is a bond and why do we have elections?<br />In the same way homeowners borrow money in the form of a mortgage to finance the purchase of a home, a school district borrows money in the form of bonds to finance the design, construction, expansion and <br />renovation of schools. <br />
  4. 4. Why not build a fourth high school, instead of expanding MHS and MNHS?<br />It’s simple. We cannot afford it.<br />
  5. 5. Why was a new natatorium not included in the bond program?<br />Again, we simply cannot afford it. While the district and many parents and community members would love to pursue a new natatorium, accommodating student enrollment growth and taking care of academic, safety, and security upgrades takes precedence over a new natatorium. <br />

  46. 46. If the bond should fail, what is an alternative solution to accommodate <br />the growth and renovations?<br /> Historically, McKinney ISD has addressed campus over-crowding through a number of actions. The Board and Administration have made no final decisions on steps that would be taken, but we would work to address the issue in as positive a manner as possible , if the bond failed and the projected growth were to occur.<br /><ul><li>In the past,lunches began sooner at some campuses,and more lunch periods were added, as capacity exceeded core areas
