Please support the LPOSD supplemental levy

Print Article

Because of the way our schools are funded or not funded by the state, the time has come to once again approve a levy. This two-year levy is roughly $12 million per year which will replace the expiring levy and is not a permanent levy.

So, what is covered with this levy? For starters one-third of all district staff which numbers 300 full- and part-time positions will be funded. Additionally, proper class size, secondary electives and small rural schools are also continued.

This levy is 30 percent of the school district’s annual revenue; that blows me away and is such a shout out to the state to fund schools fully.

All academic and extracurricular activities (math competitions and sports for example) are funded with this levy; all curriculum and instructional materials as well as professional development and instructional mentoring are paid for with these levy dollars.

Technology internal network upgrades, fiber network connectivity, hardware, software licenses and entire technology department staff are all paid for with these levy dollars.

Our terrific teachers and staff will receive a wage increase with these levy dollars.

I checked out the levy calculator and my property taxes would increase by less than $7 per month.

Please join me in voting “yes” on March 12 to continue our excellent educational offerings in the LPOSD.
