Description:  Six months ago (10/26/20) the Board approved a tax levy for the 2020-21 fiscal year that included approximately $12.5 million applied to previously issued callable debt in a strategy known as debt defeasance.  This strategy reduces approximately $2,000,000 in interest costs while offering greater flexibility in future debt management as well as referendum planning.  The second and final step in this process is to formally approve the establishment of an escrow account for the purposes of defeasance of certain general obligation bonds and transfer of funds into this account.  Administration requests that this formal action take place at the March 8 Board of Education meeting.
