  • Why is the school district putting a Replacement Levy for Instructional Technology Improvements on the ballot, and what would it pay for?

    Our current technology levy is set to expire in 2018.

    • Expand the district’s wireless infrastructure
    • Provide training and support to integrate new technology into classroom instruction
    • Update and add instructional and assessment systems
