Current Election Information

  • The Governing Board of the Tempe Union High School District has called a special budget override election to be held on November 7, 2017 to request voter authorization to exceed the Maintenance and Operation Budget Limit by 15% of the revenue control limit to be in effect for a period of seven years.

    The increase authorized by this election shall be funded from a levy of taxes on the taxable property within the District. The proposed override is a continuation and increase of the existing 10% override. The additional 5% budget override would be used exclusively for compensation package of the certificated teaching staff.

    The District plans to phase in the additional 5% levy over the next four years to provide an on-going funding source for teacher compensation increases. The plan is to levy an additional 2% of the M&O override in year 1 and an additional 1% each year after until the maximum additional 5% is reached.
