SCHOOL DISTRICT QUESTION 1 (ISD #277)
Renewal of Expiring Capital Project Levy Authorization
The school board of Independent School District No. 277 (Westonka Public Schools) has proposed to renew the school district's existing capital project levy authorization of 3.400% times the net tax capacity of the school district, which is scheduled to expire after taxes payable in 2024. The money raised from the capital project levy authorization will provide funds for classroom and building technology, digital and print curriculum, technology to enhance safety and security, technology infrastructure and network improvements, technical staff support, device replacement, and testing. The proposed capital project levy authorization will raise approximately $2,575,178 for taxes payable in 2025, the first year it is to be levied, and would be authorized for ten years. The estimated total cost of the projects to be funded over that time period is approximately $25,751,780. The projects to be funded have received a positive Review and Comment from the Commissioner of Education.
Shall the capital project levy authorization proposed by the school board of Independent School District No. 277 be approved?
