The Canon City School District is asking voters to support two ballot issues this November.
Issue 3B is a $1.4 Million mill levy override that would be used to fund new advanced placement and vocational classes. It would also allow the district to purchase new text books and classroom technology, along with recruiting and retaining teachers.
Issue 3C is a $5.5 Million bond for the district. Money from the bond would buy new equipment for vocational programs, make repairs to several school buildings and upgrade security across the district.
Over the past 5 years, the district has seen it's budget cut by $3 Million and they say they have done everything they can to offset those cuts.
Superintendent Dr. Robin Gooldy says the average homeowner in Canon City would only pay about $7 a month if both ballot issues are passed.
The November election in Fremont County is an all mail ballot.
