May 2021 Bond Measure
The proposed bond measure is designed to address health, safety, and security concerns; address community growth and classroom overcrowding; repair and upgrade schools; and support student career pathways.
The current tax rate, which passed in 2005, is $1.21 per $1,000 of assessed value. If the proposed measure passes, it is estimated that taxpayers in the Cascade School District would pay $2.13 per $1,000 of assessed value for 25 years. If the proposed measure does not pass, taxpayers would continue to pay the current rate of $1.21 per $1,000 of assessed value.
In addition, the district has qualified for a $4 million matching grant from the State of Oregon’s OSCIM program. The district will only receive this grant if the measure passes. An independent citizen-led Bond Oversight Committee would be established to oversee the use of bond funds if the proposed bond measure passes.
