Levy 2021

Our school board unanimously voted to authorize a special election on November 2 to renew our 2011 operating levy. In addition, a second question will be added for funding classroom technology and curriculum.

Question 1: No-tax increase renewal

  • Question 1 is a no-tax increase renewal of an existing operating levy passed in 2011. It maintains funding that is already in place.

Question 2: $3 million levy to support classroom technology and curriculum

  • The technology and curriculum capital projects levy will fulfill classroom needs such as:

    • Digital curriculum and classroom tools

    • Replacement cycle for more than 10,000 district devices purchased during the pandemic

    • Technology staff

    • Technology infrastructure

  • If approved, Question 2 will cost the average homeowner about $5.75/month (for a $250,000 home).

You may be asking, “didn’t we just pass a referendum?” The answer is, yes. In May 2019, our residents graciously approved a bond referendum. Bond referendum dollars are dedicated solely to construction projects, while levies cover operational costs. Simply stated: Bonds are for buildings, and levies are for learning.

There are many ways residents can learn more about the request in order to make an informed vote.

We are grateful to our community members for the support of our school district. You will be seeing more information about the November 2, 2021, special election as you attend open houses over the next several days.
