Voters passed the levies, so now what?
Voters in our community approved both levy questions on the ballot on Tuesday by a very close margin. We are grateful for this support and we recognize we have a lot of work to do to rebuild trust within our district.
We’re committed to using these financial resources in the very best way possible to support learning. We’re focused on improving academic achievement and providing the social and emotional support kids need. We have a lot of work ahead of us and we look forward to continuing to partner with everyone in our community to meet the needs of our students.
So, what can you expect for your levy dollars?
Funds from the new levies will be available for the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
- While Question 1 doesn’t buy us anything new, it will allow us to continue offering the opportunities and experiences our students have come to expect.
- Question 2 will ensure students and staff have access to the technology tools and support they need for success. Watch for a 1:1 technology program to roll out next year.
- The technology levy also frees up some money in our general fund. We will focus those resources on improving academic achievement and providing the social and emotional support kids need.
