The NCCS Board of Education voted to place a 3.6 mill bond issue on the March 17th ballot that would construct two new elementary buildings. Residents will see only a small increase in their taxes because the bond issue for $22,953,000 passed in 1994 to convert the Hoover High School Career Center into a comprehensive high school and make renovations to other school buildings was paid off December 1, 2019. The effective millage of that issue was down to two mills. Residents with a $100,000 house would actually pay only $56 per year more than they paid in 2019 in order to build two schools for grades pre-K through five. The 36-year bond issue would raise $58.5 million.
If the bond issue passes, the district would consolidate five of the present schools: The Mary L. Evans Early Childhood Center, Clearmount Elementary and Northwood Elementary would be consolidated into a preschool through second grade. Greentown Intermediate and Orchard Hill Intermediate would house grades three through five.
