Planning & Timeline

According to Oregon School Board Associations Tips to Conducting Successful Bond Elections, there are distinct rules and responsibilities in a bond election campaign.

        Ashland School District Bond Process
A school board’s decision to put a bond levy on the ballot should trigger a number of district information and community-sponsored activities. These activities should involve a cross-section of key community members in the decision-making process, show voters the merits of the district’s proposal, and help advocacy committees focus on methods of gaining voter support.

Following are roles and responsibilities for board members, administrators, staff, parents, students and community members in a bond election campaign.
In preparation for the passing of a school bond, Ashland School District will have two distinct committees, a Bond Proposal Committee and a Bond Campaign Committee. To view groups working with these committees, see the Ashland School District Bond Process graphic to the right.
