School Support Levy 2024
There's a levy measure on the February ballot
Posted on 11/30/2023

There’s a levy measure on the ballot. Board members voted unanimously to run a levy measure in February 2024. Our community will vote on the renewal of our current school support levy, which expires soon. The proposed three-year replacement levy would remain at or below the current levy rate of $1.50 per $1,000 of assessed value.

The levy is about 10% of our budget and helps pay for things the state does not fully fund. It bridges the gap between state funding and the actual costs of the programs and services we provide for our students. Levy dollars support:

  • Safety – Safety and security personnel, as well as grounds, maintenance, and custodial staff.

  • Special education – Staffing and support to meet service requirements for our special education students.

  • Sports & activities – Art, athletics, clubs, drama, and music offered outside the school day.

  • Student supports – Teachers and support professionals beyond what the state funds, helping us support daily operations (transportation, libraries, meals), preserve current class sizes, offer a variety of electives and AP classes, and provide counseling services; also the purchase and maintenance of technology.
