Building a Better Future: Be informed on district’s learning and technology needs

For the first time in nearly a decade, the community is being asked to reinvest in district schools to maintain services and address growing needs. The current voter-approved levies - operating and capital projects for technology - are set to expire soon. Together they make up approximately 15% of the district's financial resources. 

The first Nov. 8 ballot question focuses on the operating levy, which pays for day-to-day learning and instructional needs. Funding would continue and expand: 

  • Individualized learning, 
  • Academic interventions, 
  • Scholar mental health needs, and  
  • Other critical classroom supports. 

The second Nov. 8 ballot question focuses on the technology levy, which pays for classroom learning technology, infrastructure systems and needed support staff. Funding would additionally prioritize:  

  • School safety and security technology,
  • Tools and systems for all scholars, and
  • Digital learning spaces at schools. 

If both requests are approved by voters, the tax impact for the average homeowner ($250,000 valued home) would be about $9 per month.
