In March 2002 a special election of registered voters of the District approved the issuance of $49,700,000 of general obligation bond debt, to finance construction of new facilities, to renovate and improve existing schools and to fund a portion of the cost of the construction of Fisler elementary school. The debt has been refinanced several times to take advantage of improved interest rates. All funds raised have now been expended and disclosure information regarding the issued debt can be found at the Electronic Municipal Market Access system “EMMA”.
