Levy Facts

FACT: The state education funding plan is a step in the right direction, but the state is not yet fully covering all basic education costs. We still need a local levy.

FACT: Our levy pays for needs the state is not yet fully funding, like special educationschool nursesschool securityathleticsteacher training days and other critical needs.

FACT: Our schools depend on levies to fund the quality education our community expects for our children.

FACT: The new state plan reduces the amount of funding we can request from local taxpayers when we renew our educational programs levy. Even with passage of a renewal levy, we will actually see a net reduction in funding after 2018 unless lawmakers make changes to the current funding plan.

FACT: The estimated levy rate is $1.50 per $1000 in assessed home valuation.

FACT: The levy is for a fixed dollar amount. The school district does not collect more money if property values increase. The levy would raise a maximum of $198 million over four years.

FACT: Voters are asked to approve a levy every three to four years. When a levy expires, it must be renewed by voters.

FACT: A levy measure must be approved by 50 percent of the voters.
