Building Stronger Schools Together! - Jackson Public Schools
August 2018 Bond Election for Building Improvements


Ensuring our students have safe and healthy environments to learn is a top priority for Jackson Public Schools. To help support our efforts to improve school facilities, the Jackson Public Schools Board of Trustees has announced a special bond election for August 7, 2018.

The total amount of approximately $65 million will be used for building improvements, renovations and/or construction at our schools. Approximately $15.5 million of the total will be used to satisfy all of the facilities citations identified in the audit performed by the Mississippi Department of Education.

This bond will not increase taxes paid by homeowners in the city of Jackson. The District paid off some existing debt in April 2018 and now has the opportunity to reissue the debt to get these additional funds. Because the existing debt was already being paid by taxpayers, reissuing the same amount will not cause any increase in taxes.

We invite you to ask questions and share feedback about this bond election. Please click the General Information and Questions button below to get started. Be sure to include your contact phone number or email if you would like a response.

We are building stronger schools—and brighter futures—together!
