If the levy doesn’t pass, what happens?

Posted by:

School districts rely on local taxpayers to help fund their school districts. For fiscal year 2022, $4,454,475.44, or 86% of our funding, currently comes from state/federal aid with $696,010.32, or 14%, coming from taxpayer levy dollars. 

Our current operating levy will expire soon. It is imperative that we pass an operating levy to be able to ensure program stability and retention of quality staff. The operating levy funds being requested are for operations. Should this fail in the Fall of 2021, we will turn around and go back out to a vote as soon as possible in 2022. Going further into the future without passing the levy could result in reduction of teaching staff or cutting of programs and opportunities.
