Bonds and Overrides
School districts thrive based on the support of their community. Litchfield Elementary School District is proud of the way we use our tax dollars, provided by both local taxpayers and those across the state, in order to provide the best possible education to every student in our “A” rated district. State and federal dollars are not enough to meet the educational and safety needs of students. The district has made use of bond and override elections, approved by local voters, to supplement the budget and meet student needs.
School district budgets are quite different from household budgets and are subject to rules and restrictions put in place by voters and the legislature. The information on this page provides a basic understanding of how Arizona schools are financed and the additional revenue available through bond and override measures. For detailed information on how each dollar that comes into the district is used, please visit our Business Services page.
If you have any questions about the budget or bonds and overrides that are not addressed on this page, please call us at 623-535-6047 and we would be happy to provide additional information.
