2019 Capital Project
On May 21, 2019, ICSD voters authorized a $120 million, tax-neutral capital improvement bond to support the 2019 Capital Project. This district-wide, long-term facilities plan has been designed to enhance safety and security, upgrade teaching and learning spaces, and improve infrastructure at all ICSD schools.
The ICSD will pay for the 2019 Capital Project using a combination of State Building Aid and debt retirement — as the District pays off old debt, it will take on new debt to fund the improvements. This system of debt retirement will stabilize the debt service line in the ICSD’s annual budget and, as a result, the capital project will be tax neutral.
