Request for Arguments For or Against the Special Budget Override Election

St. Johns Unified School District No. 1 of Apache County, Arizona (the district) will hold a special nine percent maintenance and operation budget override election on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. We estimate the total nine percent budget override amount for the first year of the proposed continuation to be $595,000, and it would fund in that year by an approximate $0.41 tax rate per $100 of net assessed valuation for secondary property tax purposes which is approximately equal to the current secondary tax rate for the district's existing budget override. 

Arguments for or against the budget override are due to the office of the Apache County school superintendent on or before Wednesday, August 7 at 5:00 p.m. Please see our request for arguments for more information.
