J.O. Combs Unified School District Calls for Bond Election

This recommendation from administration comes after careful consideration and study, as well as consulting with and hearing from interested groups. In addition, a community phone survey was conducted with results demonstrating a base of voter support for the proposed $40 million bond. A successful bond election would allow the district to address the necessary renovations and improvements to school buildings, technology upgrades, student transportation, and new construction to include a community auditorium, transportation facility and district services facility.

According to Shannon Weber, Director of Support Services, seven of the student transportation buses are 15 years or older and keeping students safe is a priority. Transportation demands have also resulted in a need for an updated transportation facility to properly maintain the district’s fleet.

With deep cuts in state funding the past several years, school districts rely on community support to keep schools and buses in good working order. The average homeowner would expect to see a tax impact of less than $8 per month.

Managing tax payer dollars appropriately while making decisions in the best interest of students is a main focus for district leaders. The J.O. Combs School District’s Business Department has proudly been the recipient of the Certificates of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO).

“Passing the bond will allow the district the opportunity to meet existing challenges and plan for the future,” states Superintendent Dr. Gayle Blanchard.
