On May 21st Jacksonville area voters have the opportunity to complete our proud school system by funding construction of new middle and elementary schools. The millage extension is not a new tax or a rate increase, it is simply an eight (8) year extension of the current millage, which expires in 2042. A recent Federal Court ruling mandated completion of all new Jacksonville area schools by 2026, to meet this deadline we must begin now. Voting FOR the millage extension is the final step in Jacksonville's journey to educational independence.
New schools constructed will be outfitted with modern security systems. A child who knows they are safe, is a child who is better prepared to learn.
Passage will make the collective facilities of the JNP School District the newest and most advanced in Arkansas, providing students with the latest cutting edge technology.
Voting FOR the school millage extension in Jacksonville will allow the JNP School District to remain in compliance with the federal requirements to insure local control of decisions about our children's education.
