Maintenance and Operations Levy

On March 10th the Coeur d’Alene School District will ask voters to consider approving a two-year Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Levy of $15M. The current M&O levy expires in June 2015. 


Local taxpayer support of public schools has become essential. One out of five dollars the district spends on educating our students comes from the local levy.  Levy dollars fund the day-to-day operations of the district’s educational programs, bridging the gap between the funding provided by the state and the cost of meeting the educational needs of our students.


This spring’s request will include a multi-year plan to reduce class sizes and hire more teachers. The levy request will also include purchasing curriculum materials and textbooks for students.
