| CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
In June 2013, voters in the Indianola school district approved two different bond referendum ballot questions which will have a significant impact on our district’s facilities. As communicated through the bond issue campaign, the future school tax levy as a result of the bond issue will not exceed the 2012-13 overall levy rate of $20.46. Approximately $29 million of construction work will take place during the next two and a half school years. Here is the latest update:
