This measure sought to increase the current school levy by a rate of $1.09 per $1,000 of assessed property value for a period of three years. The money generated from the measure would have gone towards general school funds, aimed mostly at allowing the district to stay open ten more days during the next school years. The district is struggling to balance their budget and cutting school days was one of the ways. This measure would have ensured the school could remain open for the period it is supposed to.[2]
