Note that the outstanding General Obligation Bond debt of the District as of June 30, 2013, is already $336,340,000.
The total requirements to amortize through 2044 these General Obligation Bonds outstanding as of June 30, 2013 is $558,520,819.
Now add $265 M more in debt which would take $530 M to retire and the DUHSD would now have a total amortized debt of $1.08 BILLION !!!

Why do I have a feeling that the slicing and dicing of data will "slice" out the over 1/2 BILLION dollars of bonds already owed. If this were to pass, the district would have over a BILLION in bond debt, and not even have another full high school to show for it.
I will lend my full support to NO. And I will be happy to help fund a NO on this measure.
Ravenswood High School: 1958-1976 (18 years)
San Carlos High School: 1960-1982 (22 years)
Does the district hold any debt related to these high schools that were closed two decades after opening?
Seems like my earlier post following Peter has been removed. It went something like this: And that doesn't include matching funds from the state. But then, local taxpayers don't pay for that. Or do they?
