The annual debt millage required to retire all bonds of the School District currently outstanding and
proposed pursuant to this Proposal is expected to remain at or below the annual debt millage of 4.02
mills levied in 2019. The maximum number of years any series of bonds may be outstanding,
exclusive of refunding, is not more than twenty (20) years; the estimated millage that will be levied to
pay the proposed bonds in the first year is 0.98 mills (which is equal to $0.98 per $1,000 of taxable
value); and the estimated simple average annual millage that will be required to retire each series of
bonds is 1.65 mills annually ($1.65 per $1,000 of taxable value).

(Pursuant to State law, expenditure of bond proceeds must be audited, and the proceeds cannot be
used for teacher, administrator or employee salaries, repair or maintenance costs or other operating
expenses.)
