After failing for the past three years, the board approved referendum plans.

The levy is for four years at $695 per student. It would make 973-thousand dollars. Less than the $1.2 million necessary to maintain current funding levels.

Last year's referendum asked for $985. The price of the levy on a $200,000 home is 211 dollars a year.
