Why would the District work to pass a Mill Levy Override before the bond issue when the building needs are so great?

A:

This was a strategic decision. District 6 had never passed a Mill Levy Override before 2017, and was in desperate need for additional operational dollars to directly support student learning, such as text books and digital content, computers, security cameras, summer school programming, after school programming, school buses, and raises for hourly wages that were below market. The Board of Education and the superintendent agreed the Mill Levy Override had to take precedent over a bond issue, but that a bond issue would need to quickly follow the passage of a Mill Levy Override.
