|On September 20, 2016, Hot Springs School District Voters approved a 4.4 mill increase and extension of the current 10.8 debt mills in order to meet the facility needs of our growing school district and continue valuable programs. The positive vote will enable the district to replace some older facilities, renovate existing facilities and provide new and improved academic, music, art, career related opportunities, athletic and multipurpose facilities for our students. During the campaign, we pledged to our public that we would make the very best use of their millage dollars as we plan, build and maintain these new buildings. When construction is completed, we will be able to offer the Hot Springs Community four High quality K-6 Magnet Programs. We will also have a new Junior High Building for grades 7-9 and High School grades 10-12.
In an effort to keep our public posted on the progress, changes and challenges faced during this construction process over the next three or more years, we will use this section of our webpage to communicate as we move forward on these projects. Millage Dollars At Work will be updated throughout the process and we will use this as a communications tool to try to answer questions we might receive through phone calls, personal contacts, email and Facebook about the construction process. We hope you find this helpful and informative.
