A Note from the Principal:

  • "With the addition of six classrooms Tillman will accommodate district projected enrollment growth while maintaining the current KSD classroom guidelines. Prop R will allow for art and music to have dedicated spaces where instruction can be delivered along with bringing our library up-to-date with elementary libraries across the district. Students will now have a dedicated space to eat lunch and a separate space for PE/health classes."

    Dr. Maria Stobbe, Tillman Elementary Principal

The Right Reasons for Tillman:

  • The addition of six classrooms will allow Tillman to help accommodate district projected enrollment growth while maintaining the current KSD classroom guidelines. Prop R will allow for art and music to have dedicated spaces where instruction can be delivered along with bringing our library up-to-date with elementary libraries across the district. The new wellness and gymnasium facility will solve the “Tillman shuffle”! Students will now have a dedicated space to eat lunch and a separate space for PE/health classes. The improvement of security cameras and lighting has been a top priority of the facilities master plan. These upgrades will benefit the school and the neighborhood community. 

    As you can see, the bond referendum has major implications for Tillman as we continue to grow while maintaining our commitment to personalize learning for each child.

    Currently, Tillman does not have proper and necessary lighting on our campus. Staff, students, and community members who utilize our facilities in winter afternoons and evenings travel to their vehicles in poorly lit parking lots. This is a safety issue. Updating our lighting will provide proper safety measures.

    Currently, the lack of camera coverage throughout the district puts the district at risk for vandalism, theft, fraudulent issuance claims which all put the district at risk. Prop R will allow the district to install cameras to reach the proper spaces in our schools to monitor our buildings. Right now, there are entrances, exits, and playgrounds not properly monitored via security cameras which put our students at risk.

  • Prop R is a zero tax rate change bond proposal.
