Levy vs. Bond
Why are we voting on school funding again when we already passed a construction bond to modernize and expand the high school and the middle school?
Levies are for learning and bonds are for building!
This means that bond funds may only be used for capital (construction) projects, not for educational programs. The 2015 Construction Bond allowed us to complete the Moxee Elementary Parking Lot Expansion Project and the East Valley Central Auxiliary Gym & 8-Classroom Addition project, and is currently allowing us the opportunity to modernize and expand East Valley 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.
