Prop S: Safe schools, safe kidsThe Mehlville School District Board of Education voted unanimously at its Jan. 21, 2021, meeting to place a zero tax rate increase bond issue measure on the ballot on April 6, 2021. The bond issue, called Proposition S, would fund projects to improve student safety and accessibility and complete deferred maintenance without increasing the tax rate.

If passed, Prop S would fund security entrances at every school; improved accessibility for individuals with disabilities; heating, cooling and ventilation upgrades; restroom renovations and additions; parking lot improvements; roof replacements and other projects.

Prop S would generate $35 million to complete these projects without raising the current tax rate. Voter approval would allow the district to transfer 12 cents of the existing tax rate to address facility needs at all schools within Mehlville School District at no additional cost to the taxpayer.
