Vote yes to support community, academic excellence

Print Article

Vote “yes” on Lake Pend Oreille School District’s replacement levy on Tuesday, March 12, 2019. A “yes” vote reflects well-deserved confidence in our staff, our students, our community, and our future.

Funding schools through levies is the norm for Idaho. Over 80 percent of school districts in Idaho must rely on supplemental/replacement levies. In Bonner County, each school, particularly the small rural ones, depend on the local support acquired through a replacement levy in order to survive

Exemplary student achievement has become LPOSD’s hallmark. Voting “yes” to support community and academic excellence provides an excellent return on your tax dollars. Our students are successful and succeed in large part due to our skilled and dedicated staff. To maintain this high standard, the staff of LPOSD must be paid a wage which is regionally competitive in Idaho. This levy will assure LPOSD can recruit and retain highly effective teachers.

Our community must come together to make certain this replacement levy passes. If the levy doesn’t pass, it will be disastrous for our community. Schools will be consolidated resulting in the elimination of services to our small rural schools. Academic and athletic extracurricular activities will be cut along with curriculum and technology. Additionally, well over 300 full and part-time positions will be lost affecting every facet of our community.

This replacement levy replaces the expiring levy, is not added to an existing levy, is not permanent and will expire in two years.

Vote “yes” to support community and academic excellence.
