Vote Yes on the school levy | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

As a former Finance Director of the Arlington School District and prior Mayor of Arlington I would like to take this opportunity to remind our Arlington School District citizens that on Tuesday, February 14th a Replacement 4-Year Maintenance and Operations Levy will be on the election ballot. The current four-Year M & O levy will expire at the end of this year.

As a former Finance Director of the Arlington School District and prior Mayor of Arlington I would like to take this opportunity to remind our Arlington School District citizens that on Tuesday, February 14th a Replacement 4-Year Maintenance and Operations Levy will be on the election ballot. The current four-Year M & O levy will expire at the end of this year.

The passing of this levy is extremely important as it represents 26 percent to 28 percent of the budget each year. These funds will be used to support Technology, Curriculum, Staff Development, Special Programs (never funded totally by the state), Professional Development, Academics Transportation, and Extra Curricular Programs. This M & O levy is essential to maintain the high level of education that the Arlington School district is currently providing our students.

I applaud the School Board for presenting a levy that basically is driven by the same tax as the prior levy. Good job! It is important that we all be good stewards of our taxpayers’ money.

This M & O Replacement Levy is integral to the operations of the School District and affects the entire community, young and old. Please vote Yes.
