On November 2nd, 2021 Higley Unified School District residents voted on a $95 million dollar bond election. As a parent/guardian of Higley Unified School District, we would like to ask a few questions about the 2021 election (regardless of whether or not you voted in the 2021 election). In addition, Higley Unified School District would like input regarding a potential 2022 Bond Proposal. Our District administration is committed to engaging with stakeholders in key decisions directly affecting your child's education and experience within our schools.

Why:

As Higley Unified District continues to grow, additional capital funds are needed for the long-term financial health of the District to ensure that we continue to provide exceptional learning opportunities for students. It has been eight years since our last bond election. In order to keep Higley Unified moving forward as one of the top school districts in Arizona, it is time to review those capital and infrastructure needs to build upon our solid foundation. A new bond will allow Higley Unified to emphasize greater infrastructure and quality facilities to support exceptional learning opportunities for all students.

Bond History:

Higley Unified School District's previous bond authorization was approved in 2013 in the amount of $70 million. Voters approved the measure to provide the following:
- New school construction (including furniture and equipment)
- New buildings for existing school sites
- Land for new schools
- Technology upgrades and improvements
- Maintenance, repair and improvements at existing schools
- Pupil transportation
