This is a tax swap, which means the tax rate will remain the same at $5.50 if the referendum passes or fails. If the questions fail, the district won’t be able to use funds in the most efficient way. The tax rate will be the same because the district will need to take out new working cash bonds and continue to use variable rate funds to cover operating expenses.

Our brains are great at using past experiences to make quick decisions on the fly, but these shortcuts can also lead to bias. "Confirmation bias" is our brain's tendency to seek out information that confirms things we already think we know. Help your students learn to recognize this when they encounter news online, as a way to examine competing opinions and ideas and to avoid drawing questionable conclusions.
