2022 Proposed Override Information

  • The governing board of Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) passed a motion to call for a Maintenance and Operations budget override election scheduled for November 8, 2022. 

    The goal of the override election is to continue the existing 15% override that was authorized by voters in November 2018. The override is estimated to generate nearly $7.9 million in Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 to support staffing and programs not funded through the state education budget. 

    The current Maintenance and Operations Override is fully-funded for five fiscal years, from FY 2020 to FY 2024, before it begins to phase down by one-third in FY 2025 and another one-third in FY 2026 as required by state law. The override will then terminate thereafter unless such authorization is renewed by the voters in the school district. 

    The ballot measure will ask voters the question of authorizing the school district, for a period of seven years, to continue to exceed its applicable revenue control limit by 15% for the first five years, 10% for the sixth year, and 5% for the seventh year.

    FUSD appreciates the continued support from parents and the community to provide and expand programs that challenge and prepare students for success, such as preschool, full-day kindergarten, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate, arts, athletics, and STEM offerings. FUSD is committed to providing quality education for all students and preparing them for college and careers.

    The last day to register to vote in this election is October 11, 2022.
