Since 2012, BCSC has lost more than 600 teachers to resignation and retirement. This significantly impacts our ability to thrive as a community and school district. We must be able to retain and recruit the best teachers and staff for the more than 12,000 students we serve each day. In addition, we must continue our investments in the safety and security of students, staff, parents, and community residents. In order to do so, we are proposing a referendum that will keep our tax rates under the state average and ask the average homeowner to make an investment of $7.79 per month. 100% of the funds will be used to retain and recruit staff to support high quality education and to invest in student safety and security.
