Levy 2021 Did You Know?

In 2019, voters approved a bond referendum. A bond is different from a levy because bonds are used to build new buildings and improve/maintain existing buildings. A levy supports the learning and operational needs related to educating students.

Bonds are for buildings, and levies are for learning.

Learn more about the referendum at the Levy 2021 webpage.
