The Tempe Union High School District community of Desert Vista, Mountain Pointe, Corona del Sol, Compadre Academy, Tempe, McClintock, and Marcos de Niza is requesting your YES vote on the November 7 ballot in order to continue the 10% maintenance and override budget with an additional 5% (over 5 years) to support certified teaching compensation.
The override extension will protect smaller class sizes, continue core classes such as English, Math and Science, allow for elective programs including fine arts and career and technical education programs, and secure the gifted and English language learners programs.
School preventive maintenance, instructional technology services support and athletic and other extra‐curricular programs are included in the 10% override. The additional 5% override will be used exclusively for certified teaching staff compensation.
Impact on taxpayers? The average value of a District home is $204,500, which equates to an approximate cost of $70.86 per year for the full 15% override. The additional 5% override will be levied with 2% the first year and an additional 1% each year until the maximum additional 5% is reached.
