By a unanimous vote the Finley School Board will be placing a two-year maintenance and operations (M&O) levy on the February 11th 2014 ballot.

School districts run such levies to help support programs that are under-funded or not supported by the state.  According to the district:

“If approved by the voters, levy funds will be used to support essential programs, staff and operating expenses that are unfunded or under-funded by state and federal revenue.

The Finley School Board discussed levy figures and options during their regular board meeting at 7 PM on Monday, November 18. The Board approved a levy rate of $4.15 per $1,000 of assessed value in 2015, and $4.18 in 2016. The total levy request amount will total $1,800,000 in 2015 and $1,850,000 in 2016. The proposed levy will replace the current levy voters approved during the last election in February 2012. “

Among the programs the levy will pay for include:

  • Staffing and school programs
  • athletics
  • extra-curricular activities
  • textbooks
  • coaches and advisors
  • technology for student learning
  • facility and maintenance upkeep and operations.

For more information on the levy,  citizens can contact the Finley School District at 509-586-3217.
