This measure sought to continue the current school levy which is set at a rate of .5 mills for a further four years in order to continue to pay for operational costs in the school district.[2] This money will actually be shifted from capital outlay projects to the operations budget for the schools. This measure was previously asked in 2008 and was approved by a large margin. District officials noted that without the continuation of this levy school programs and services would have needed to be cut in order to maintain the budget.[3]
