PSD has strong community support
Within the past 30 years, voters have supported PSD with mill levy overrides and bond initiatives in 1988, 1996, 2000, 2010 and most recently, November 2016.
In November 2016, PSD voters approved a $375 million bond and $8 million mill levy override to address growth within the district, as well as necessary facilities improvements. The bond will fund construction of three new schools, a new athletics complex, a new transportation facility and improvements to all existing 50 schools. The mill levy will be phased in over two years and fund start-up costs for new schools as well as costs for growth across the district.

In November 2010, the community voted to raise property taxes to pay for $120 million in improvements to existing schools and a $16 million educational mill levy override to replace cuts to teaching staff, fund technology in classrooms and provide for other programming in the district.
