Proposition E: General Information
What is Proposition E?
Proposition E (Prop E) is a proposal on the April 7 election ballot asking MRH district voters to allow the sale of $30 million in bonds to pay for necessary infrastructure upgrades at all district buildings.
How will funds be used for Prop E?
Proceeds from bond sales will be used to construct new classrooms, create safer entry points in all buildings, make cafeteria improvements, replace windows and repair roofs, add a gymnasium, update restrooms, repair fields and playgrounds, add perimeter fencing, and make other upgrades designed to maintain safe and inspirational learning spaces.
This is how Prop E will appear on the ballot:
“Shall the Board of Education of the School District of Maplewood Richmond Heights, St. Louis County, Missouri borrow money in the amount of $30,000,000 for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, renovating, expanding, improving, furnishing and equipping school sites, buildings and related facilities, including safety and security upgrades, construction of a new middle school/high school gym and renovations and expansion of the middle school/high school cafeteria, and issue general obligation bonds for the payment thereof? If this proposition is approved, the adjusted debt service levy of the school district is anticipated to remain unchanged at $1.35 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation of real and personal property.”
