On Feb. 25, Bark River-Harris School District is presenting a 20-year bond proposal for up to $3.5 million. They plan to use the money to increase physical space and improve security.
The average home in the Bark River and Harris area has a taxable value of $60,000. If the bond passes, the cost to that family will be approximately $138 annually, explained school officials.
The school is currently over capacity in their building and is using portable classrooms.
â??Space is an issue for this school district,â?? said Superintendent Jason Lockwood. â??Our enrollment has increased by almost 100 students in the past 10 years, and so weâ??re bursting at the seams in our classrooms and in our cafeteria.â??
