Lake Pend Oreille School Levy

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

School district to ask residents for $15+ million on March 12.

As is the case every two years, we will be running a supplemental levy in our district on March 12. Over the course of eight meetings, the Lake Pend Oreille School District Board of Trustees discussed district needs and deliberated over the levy rates. It is important to the board to ensure adequate funding to continue the great progress our district has made over time. The investment our community made in passing our levy two years ago paid dividends in the form of increased student achievement. We will continue to focus on continuous improvement and careful allocation of resources to ensure excellent growth for our students. 

The supplemental levy is for a two-year total of $15,767,484. The levy will fund things such as one-third of all district staff, all academic and athletic extracurricular activities, all curriculum materials, and technology upgrades and staff.  It is important to note that LPOSD has the lowest school tax rate in North Idaho, which is 53% below the state average. More details are available on the district website www.lposd.org.

Recently, a blog was started that can be found at lposd.blogspot.com.
