JACKSON COUNTY, Ore.-- The Jackson County Elections Office is reporting unofficially that Measure 15-171, which would issue multi-million dollar
bonds to improve safety, security, and learning environments in Phoenix-Talent School District No.4 schools has passed with 54% of the vote.

The measure would issue a 68-million-dollar bond to improve safety, security, and learning environments in the Phoenix-Talent School District.

Superintendent Brent Barry says, "There's 30 some percent voter turnout which is a great turnout, I am really appreciative our voters care."

The money will be divided between schools.

All three elementary schools within the district would receive a little over 5-million dollars.

The Talent Middle School would get over 6-million dollars.

Phoenix High School would get the remaining money - totaling to 48-million.

District facilities will get zero dollars.

All of the money is going towards the schools.

Superintendent Brent Barry says, "A big portion of it that we're excited for is a new academic wing at the high school and new career technical education facilities."

Over 32 percent of voters turned out for the special election.

The district will also get a grant from the state matching 4-million dollars.

The projected levy rate for the bond is estimated to be $1.54 per 1000 dollars of assessed property value.
Which equals approximately 108 dollars per year for a home assessed at 200,000 dollars.

Superintendent Brent Barry says, "I think this is a vote for students tonight and our families and future generations. The work that our bond and steering committee that have put in over three years a long-range plan for the future of the district is really exciting."
