Thayer Central Community Schools November 6, 2012 Bond Issue Information
Visit the links on the left for information on the upcoming Thayer Central Bond Issue.
The high school building was built in 1954, the primary building in 1961, and the intermediate school in 1979. Other than recent improvements to the track, roof, and HVAC system in the high school, no major improvements have been made since 1979.
If the bond issue would pass, the district would save roughly $100,000 per year in reduced transportation costs, duplicated staff, operational costs, and repairs. That represents over $2 million during the life of the bond.
If the bond issue does not pass, the district will begin to levy funds to repair and improve district facilities through the building fund. While those improvements would take place over an estimated 12 to 15 years, the current cost is estimated at over $4.4 million for repairs to outdated facilities that are 30 to 60 years old.
