Investing in our future
District taxpayers will be asked to renew an expiring operating levy on November 2, 2021, as well as consider new funding to help maintain - and possibly expand - programs for students. Watch for more details to be shared here as they become available.
The current operating levy, which generates more about $12 million in annual funding will expire next year.
A levy increase would help address the ongoing budget shortfall and ward off future budget cuts. New funding could also help expand programs for kids.
A technology levy could provide funds for devices, infrastructure and even technology staffing - freeing up thousands of dollars in our general fund to support our students.
Addressing Funding Needs
The school board is discussing several scenarios to place on a ballot in November 2021, with a renewal of an expiring operating levy its top priority. In addition to a renewal, the board may choose to ask voters to provide additional revenue through an operating levy increase and/or a capital projects/technology levy. Learn more about each of these options:
Addressing Facility Needs
The school board is expected to bring a bond referendum to voters in 2022. Holding off until 2022 allows the district to focus on the operating levy this fall, as well as study space and facility needs, consider boundary adjustments, and watch enrollment trends over the next year. Any projects approved on a 2022 bond referendum would likely be completed during the 2024-2025 school year.
