Center Grove Community School Corporation is seeking an 11.5 cent ($0.115) tax increase via a referendum question on the November 2019 ballot.
The funds raised will pay for additional safety and security measures, including live security monitoring of facilities, increased security response time/added deterrents, added mental health and classroom supports for students.
The decision to seek a referendum came from two sets of data: an audit in Spring 2018 by Safe Haven’s International, one of the world’s leading school safety organizations, to conduct a safety audit of the school district in the spring of 2018, and a survey of parents, staff, and community members, via Thought Exchange, in the spring of 2019.
