Your cost

The operating levy will pay for increased safety and security, new technology for students and teachers and improve teacher and staff compensation. Technically, this is not a new referendum, but a RENEWAL. This is simply an extension for 8 years (2023-2031). 

The funding for Indiana schools has dramatically changed and our only option, after reducing expenses and increasing student enrollment, is to ask voters for funding through property taxes. As a reminder, the 2016 operating referendum expires in 2023. A yes vote, in May will simply renew the 2016 referendum and will not increase your rate.
