Prop S

What is Prop S?

Pattonville voters gave their support to Pattonville's Proposition S on the April 5, 2022, election ballot with a 79.4% favorable vote. Prop S is a $111 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue, which will fund projects at every school in Pattonville, including adding classrooms to address growth in student enrollment; providing safety and maintenance improvements; and updating school facilities to meet teaching and learning needs. Approval of the bond issue will not increase the district's tax rate. Planning for projects in Prop S is underway. Prop S funds will: 

  • Add classrooms to address growth in student enrollment
  • Provide safety and maintenance improvements
  • Update schools to meet teaching and learning needs for students

Working Together to Address Our Needs

Pattonville leaders worked with parents, students and staff for eight months to develop the new districtwide facilities plan to ensure Pattonville’s schools are well maintained and continue to meet the educational needs of its students. In the past decade, district enrollment has grown by nearly 10% and future enrollment projections indicate the district may need additional capacity for approximately 300 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. 

Protecting Our Investment

Every few years, Pattonville updates its districtwide facilities master plan in order to protect our community’s investment in our schools. Updated plans address building needs for learning purposes and emphasize keeping the district's aging facilities maintained and in good repair. The previous facilities master plan was created in 2016, and a no-tax-rate-increase bond issue was approved by voters in April 2017 to fund updates and improvements included in the plan. As promised to voters during previous bond issues, Pattonville has maintained its debt service levy (the portion of its tax rate that can only be used for paying off bond issue debt) unchanged at 49 cents per $100 of assessed value.

Project Timeline

Each phase of construction for Prop S follows three steps: design, bidding and construction.

Design: The design process for phase one is nearly complete and designing for phase two has began. Designing for phase three will begin once planning for the previous phase is complete. During design, Pattonville staff meet with the architect to determine final needs and plans.

Bidding: After designs are complete, bids are issued for the work. Early bids are projected to be issued in October or November and all other bids are scheduled for February to April for each phase.

Construction: For each phase, construction is expected to begin during the summer and last about a year. For building additions, exterior framework will be completed so that construction can continue during inclement weather.
