Levies

Why's the School Levy a BIG Deal?


Same Levy, Same Rate

On February 9, 2015 voters approved the replacement of the current maintenance and operations levy that expires at the end of 2016. 

Projected Tax Rate

Property owners were projected to pay $3.50 per $1,000 of assessed property value per year. The levy amount approved was $25,050,000 in 2017 and $25,600,000 in 2018.

Levy Dollars Bridge the Funding Gap

Levy dollars fund almost 20% of the school district’s budget and pay for a lot of people, programs and materials not covered by state and federal dollars.
