I live in NCSD and after reviewing my property tax bill, we are paying taxes towards our children's education. Not only do we have a line item for NCSD, but we also have one for the NCSD school bond passed a little while ago. I wonder where all that money goes?
Could it be that the school district expanded too much with the ever increasing size of Happy Valley? It's interesting to ponder that none of the schools on the chopping block or up for consolidation (Campbell, Clackamas, Sojourner & Concord) are located in the east side of NCSD. We are taxed all this money for the purpose of building schools in "newer" communities while existing schools suffer.
I believe that since everyone in the school district/county are taxed proportionally for the benefit of NCSD, school closures/consolidation should be equally distributed.
