This measure sought to add to the current school levy by a rate of $.61 per $1,000 of assessed value for a period of four years in order to further pay for capital projects in the district including roof repairs, kitchen facility replacement and upgrading technologies.[2] Since the levy was approved, the district will also receive money from the state and grants to supplement project costs. The largest project proposed is a new district kitchen which would be able to provide more meals for students in a stand alone facility.[3]
