Tax Impact

If voters approve the levy referendum...

The net tax impact of the proposed question would be $25 per month, or $300 per year, on the average-value home in the district, which is $286,500. The recommendation is to revoke the existing operating levy of $940 per pupil, which was approved by district voters in 2013, and replace it with a new 10-year levy for $1,567 per pupil, an increase of $627 per pupil. The single ballot question would raise an additional $19 million per year, plus annual inflationary increases.
