Bond-MLO / Thompson Reinvented

Two proposals have been placed on the November ballot by the Board of Education:
 

-An $11 million Mill Levy Override.  The proceeds generated would be used to fund salary competitiveness to help narrow the 14% salary gap that exists between TSD and its closest neighbors, replace textbooks and curriculum throughout the district, address school bus fleet needs and provide further educational program support (math, literacy, etc.) with a per-pupil share to the district's two charter schools.

-A $288 million bond.  The proposed $288 million bond would repair $72 million in deferred building maintenance, renovate aging buildings to extend their useful life for the 21st century and reinvent school configurations through reformats and new school construction.

Proposed Tax Impact

 
-$11 million Mill Levy Override:
Estimated increase of 6.50 mills, which translates to an estimated cost of $4.31 per month per $100,000 of county-assessed residential property value.
 
-$288 million bond:
Estimated increase of 9.044 mills, which translates to an estimated cost of $6.00 per month per $100,000 of county-assessed residential property value

Thompson Reinvented was described by MPC Chair, Dr. Jason Hatch, as a "win-win" approach that addresses needs across the Loveland, Berthoud, and surrounding communities.

 

Thompson Reinvented

Thompson School District's Master Plan Committee (MPC) is a Board of Education-established standing committee provided by BOE policy FB, "Facilities Planning," and policy FBA, "Planning Advisors."  The committee is composed of students, community members and staff who meet monthly to review and forecast capital needs in the district.

From August, 2014 through June, 2016, the MPC developed the Thompson Reinvented through committee meetings, input forums, school accountability committee meetings and presentations to local community groups.  The resulting plan is intended to address more than one problem, but a complex set of issues, including...

Schools falling into disrepair; $72m in identified needs;
Zero “capital reserve” in State financing;
11 elementary schools under 300;
Several schools overcrowded, including LHS and LEMS;
1,811 open enrollment out of TSD; over $12m in lost annual revenue;
Growth has been and continues to happen, far from schools with space.
