School Bond Market Favors
Junction City
In a fluctuating market, Junction City School District was able to leverage buyers for a successful return on bond sales this week.  The District hired Piper Jaffray to facilitate $14.635 million in bond sales as generously authorized by our voters this last May.  All bonds were purchased during the sale window coordinated between the District and Piper Jaffray.  The calculated yield rates made them very palatable to a number of financial management companies, private investors, and industry professionals.

The estimated tax rate impact to our community was originally stated in our informational bond campaign as $1.62 per thousand dollars of assessed home value.  The final rate has come in just under that amount and is estimated to remain at that amount throughout the ten year term, thus meeting our commitment to our taxpayers.

Additionally, the structure of the sale enabled the District to also realize premiums paid by the investors.  These premiums have resulted in more than $2.8 million in additional capital construction revenue beyond the $14.635 million in bonds.  Combined with the $4 million in matching funds from the State, the District will have a total of just over $21.5 million in capital funds to invest in the projects identified under the initial bond title.  This means the District will be able to invest in more of the critical infrastructure needs at each of our buildings as well as achieve greater progress toward our high school investment master plan.

As outlined in our earlier bond information, the District will adopt an evaluation and decision –making process for distributing these funds to projects as identified in both our original bond title and master plan and will share the results with our community as that evolves.

Junction City students, staff, and community will be updated throughout this process, and our staff will be available to answer any questions.  This week’s bond sale success will allow us to further our goal of maintaining and advancing district facilities to support district educational goals, enhance safety, and promote community involvement.

Thank you again to all of our community for your support.

Principal, Nadira Rizkallah

Dear Parents and Guardians,

You all did it again!! You helped us fundraise $1500 for
our Turkey Drive. Because of your generous contributions, we are able to extend the gift of giving and share 35 Thanksgiving meals with some Laurel families. What a great way to teach our students about giving, compassion and gratitude, which are skills that we instill in our students through the Laurel vision.

We continue to work on enhancing our safety measures and keep a keen eye on our beloved students. We are noticing that many students are being dropped off in the middle of the street, or at times in the middle of the cross walk or the intersection. This poses a real safety issue and makes it hard for our staff and crossing guards to perform their job safely. I attached to this newsletter a quick safety guide to help you understand our drop-off and pick-up procedures. Your help and cooperation is crucial to the safety of our kids.

We will continue our focus on the “each student actively engaged” part of our Laurel Vision into the month of December. Every student is important, and every student deserves an equitable learning opportunity.
