Dear Parents and Guardians of Skyway Elementary Students,
On March 14th, the renewal of our district’s two-year supplemental M&O (Maintenance and Operations) Levy will be on the ballot for your vote. The M&O Levy allows our district to provide community-desired school services and to fund basic education needs beyond those supported by state and federal funding. By state law, M&O Levies can only be approved for a maximum of two years, thus creating our need to seek voter approval every other year.
For this spring, the School Board unanimously accepted the administration’s recommendation to increase the annual amount by $1 million to a $16 million per year M&O Levy. Our School Board wants to do the right thing for our students while being conscious of our community. The additional $1 million request for the levy will not raise our tax rate. The funds will be used to replace an aging school bus fleet in alignment with the state reimbursement schedule, purchase new English/Language Arts textbooks and curricular materials and maintain our class-size reduction efforts in the wake of continued enrollment growth. If you have questions about the levy, please contact Jan Beauchamp, Principal. at 664-8998.
Your Principal, Janice Beauchamp
