It is important to remember that continued growth is likely to have a positive impact on the economy and Brunswick County’s ability to maintain a low tax rate. But consider this…the tax increase that COMBINES the remaining debt on the 1999 school bond with the new debt from the $152 million school dollar bond on a home valued at $200,000 is estimated to be $80.20 cents a year, $6.68 a month, or $1.54 each week. Another way to think of it is the cost of a Sunday newspaper, one cheap cup of coffee, or a bottle of water each week.
We are excited to recommend a comprehensive multi-step plan that will improve and enhance the educational experiences and outcomes for our students. This plan is grounded in the following beliefs:
This plan is the result of work that began with the 2012 Facility Master Plan Study and reflects the views of community leaders, students, teachers, parents, and school leaders. A comprehensive demographic study has been conducted. The data from this study is driving the decisions contained within the plan with regard to construction of new schools or additions to existing schools.
Step 1 of our comprehensive improvement plan is successful passage of the November 8, 2016 School Bond. The cost of implementation of the projects outlined in this document is $152 million and is accomplished in 3 phases over the next 10 years. Brunswick County is the 2nd fastest growing county in North Carolina and the 38th fastest growing county in the nation! Continued growth is likely to have a positive impact on the county's economy and ability to maintain a low tax rate.
Our school system is a shining example of what’s working in public education. We are proud of our students, staff, families, and community. From the first day of kindergarten through commencement, we are focused on producing career and college ready graduates. We are asking for our community’s continued support in helping us take the necessary steps to move our system toward our goal of providing a world-class education to every student who walks through our doors.
