THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR STUDENTS!

Your tax dollars are being put to good use.  We will continue to update the progress on our most recent bond projects below.  Please contact the district office for questions or to arrange a tour of the progress. We are also excited to share additional improvement projects that will be on the ballot on October 12, 2021. The bond will capture additional property taxes to be collected in large part due to the new wind farm with funds being used primarily to meet infrastructure needs that will allow our buildings. These infrastructure projects include standing seam pitched metal roof construction to be completed on the main classroom buildings at both sites. Both sites will also see significant upgrades to aging HVAC units that will also improve the efficiency of heating and cooling our buildings. These projects will extend the life of our buildings and reduce operating costs which will allow the district to pump more resources into the classroom and also survive tough financial times. In addition to facility improvements, there will also be a transportation bond that will allow the district to purchase a much needed activity bus as well as an additional route vehicle as needed. Timberlake made the calculated decision to delay this bond from April to October in order to have accurate value numbers on the wind farm. This was done to both protect local land owners if estimates were lower than the final evaluation, but to also ensure that the district is able to capture the full value of the wind farm to improve the quality of our facilities for our kids. This decision has allowed the Timberlake district to avoid losing over $1,000,000 of new taxes that will now be poured into our school while giving local tax payers a much deserved, 1 year tax decrease. The 2021 bond proposal would bring taxes back to previous levels. Initial drawings of proposed projects can be found below, but please keep in mind that these are initial drawings so there may be cosmetic changes made to the plans based on budgetary and planning purposes. Drawings will be available for viewing and home events, as well as informational pamphlets. Please contact Kale Pierce at kpierce@tlake.k12.ok.us if you have any questions.
