Levies provide local funding that bridges the gap between what the state and federal governments pay and the actual costs of operating our schools. Levies support essential programs, staff, and services. The most significant impact of local levy dollars is the flexibility it allows on the school district to address those areas of important need. For example, you can see our list of items the levy has paid for in the past. However, for the 2021 school year and beyond, local levy dollars are going to be far more important as we look to rebuild following the devastation that COVID-19 caused on our education system.
