Please vote yes on the upcoming replacement supplemental levy for Lake Pend Oreille School District. Because the state does not adequately financially support our local educational process, it is necessary to come back to the voters rather regularly to request supplemental levies.
Requested is $8,300,000 in 2018 and $8,700,000 in 2019 for a total of $17,000,000 beginning July 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2019.
This two-year levy will be used for staff funding, student achievement and student activities. The school district has excellent and easily understandable information on their website at lposd.org.
I encourage you to take a look at the factual information, register to vote if you arenít already, and vote yes on March 14 for the supplemental levy.
