The Board of Education of the City of St. Louis has placed, Proposition S (Prop S), a $160 million, zero tax rate change bond issue, on the August 2, 2022 election ballot. If passed, bond issue funds will support facilities acquisition, construction, improvements, renovations, and upgrades across all Saint Louis Public (SLPS) schools and facilities.
Gregory F.X. Daly, St. Louis Collector of Revenue and St. Louis City Comptroller and Chief Fiscal Officer Darlene Green will co-chair the campaign.
The funding will be used for facilities work including, but not limited to air quality, lead removal, security improvements, HVAC, roof repairs, and bathroom upgrades. Every one of the more than 60 schools and buildings in SLPS will be touched in some way by these upgrades, improvements and repairs.
