Levy vs. Bond

 

Why are we voting on school funding again when we already passed a construction bond to build a competition gymnasium at the high school and add classrooms at the Elementary, Middle and High School?

 

Levies are for learning and bonds are for building!

 

This means that bond funds may only be used for capital (construction), not for educational programs.  The 2015 Construction Bond allowed us to complete the competition gym at the Granger High School, and the classroom addition project at the elementary school, middle school and high school.

 

In contrast, levy funds can be used to provide essential enrichment programs and services for our students. This Replacement Educational Support & Operations Levy funds day-to-day operations and essential enrichment opportunities that are currently offered in our schools.
