What is the GO Bond?

The General Obligation Bond or GO Bond is a $191.5 million loan dedicated to improving our schools throughout the Iowa City Community School District. Over the next seven years, the GO Bond will ensure every student will receive a 21st century education.

 

Why do we need a GO Bond?

We need a GO Bond to complete the remaining projects of the 10-year Facilities Master Plan, or FMP. The FMP was built by the FMP steering committee with the help of industry experts and over 500 community members. It is designed to improve the learning environment for every child in our district.

With the use of SAVE and PPEL dollars, the District successfully funded the first 14 FMP projects, which were all completed on time and under budget. By passing the GO Bond, the community makes a commitment to completing the 20 projects remaining on the FMP. The GO Bond unites us in support of public education, our local economy, and our community’s future.

 

What is the impact on me?

$4.25/month projected increase in property taxes on a $100,000 assessed home. Of the 10 largest school districts in Iowa, the ICCSD has the lowest property tax rate. After the bond passes, we will STILL have the lowest.
