Levies are locally approved taxes that pay for staff, programs, and day-to-day operation of schools that the state of Washington does not fund with basic education dollars. A Maintenance and Operations Levy replaces a current tax levy. It is a continuation tax, not a new tax.
On February 14, 2017, Othello voters approved a replacement levy proposed by the Othello School District. Levy dollars are essential to maintaining current student learning programs and services that are not fully funded by the state:
- Student Health & Safety
- Athletics & Student Activities
- Curriculum & Assessment
- 1:1 Initiative
Thank you, Othello voters, for your continued support of educating our youth and growing their future!
