Coming in April, Ki-Be parents will be able to attend any of 3 public forums, to get information about the school district's proposed levy.

The Ki-Be School District proposes a two year plan which would take care of a lot of activities and needs in the District. According to the District:

"The District’s two-year levy would be collected at $1.445 million in 2022 and $1.561 million in 2023 at a projected tax rate of $1.50 per $1,000 assessed property value. If approved, these local dollars will stay local and help pay for educational programs in Kiona-Benton City that are not fully funded by the state, including athletics, music, technology support, special education, class size, nurses, counselors, safety staff, advanced courses, and extracurricular activities."

Here is an image from the District, showing a breakdown of how the funding is distributed from such levy proposals.
