Nov. 5 Substitute Levy

The November 5 substitute levy maintains current funding for the district by renewing an existing tax levy.
Because taxpayers are already paying on the existing levy, first approved in November 2010, taxes will not increase as a result of approval of the substitute levy.
The continuing substitute levy is different from a typical operating levy because it allows the district to capture new revenue from future growth in our district from new residential or business development. That means that as new residents and companies move into the district and build, they'll pay the same taxes to help fund the costs of educating kids who move into our community as a result of new housing or businesses. Tax rates for current residents and business would stay the same. 
The continuing substitute levy would not expire.
Without these existing levies, the district would lose more than $1.8 million a year in funding that helps pay for programs, classes, teachers, supplies, staff, materials and more for our schools.
