APRIL 4, 2023 NO TAX INCREASE BOND ISSUE
Largest Issues in District History Pass Resoundly
Liberty Public Schools had two issues approved by local voters on Tuesday, April 4, 2023. The $120 Million No Tax Increase Bond Issue was passed with 80% approval. The No Tax Increase Levy Transfer Issue was passed with 66% approval. Passage of the two issues comes following a nearly two-year long-range planning process. In December 2022, the Board of Education unanimously voted to place the two issues on the April ballot. Members of the Liberty Public Schools team spent the months leading up to the election sharing information with LPS stakeholders as part of its informational campaign.
"These approvals were the result of incredibly hard work by our entire LPS team," Liberty Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jeremy Tucker shared with staff on Wednesday, April 5. "This was due to the great things taking place in all of our buildings and departments across LPS, and the support that our families and community have for you. There is no doubt that these past several years have been challenging, both during, and now following, the pandemic. These results confirmed that our community believes in us, trusts us, and values Liberty Public Schools and public education."
Approval of these issues allows LPS to move forward with numerous construction projects and additional items that have been prioritized as Board of Education goals in recent years. While construction projects identified to be addressed as part of this phase of bond projects will take several years to fully complete, several projects have already begun. LPS will be committed to providing regular updates as to progress being made here on our website, along with our other various communication platforms. We encourage you to remain engaged with us as we share all of the exciting upgrades taking place all around Liberty Public Schools!
