The current E, P, & O levy is set to expire at the end of the 2022 tax year. Levy funds enable the District to support educational programs and operations, including teaching, school supplies, technology, athletics, building maintenance, transportation, and other educational needs.
What does the levy fund?
This levy enables the District to support vital educational programs and operations for students, including teaching, school supplies, technology, athletics, building maintenance, transportation, and other educational needs. The educational programs and operations this levy helps fund are outlined below.
Levy funds provide monetary support where the state falls short of fully funding education. Without this critical funding, class sizes will be higher, and vital teacher and support staff positions would be reduced.
Athletics and extra-curricular activities such as after-school clubs are an important part of the development of the whole child. Elimination of these programs would have a direct impact on students' overall educational experience.
The E, P, & O levy provides necessary funds for curriculum and supplies for teaching and learning. The inability to stay on a continuous adoption cycle of curriculum materials causes the district to fall behind impacting student learning.
Thanks to voters for their support of previous capital levies for technology, the District has been a leader in providing 1:1 student Chromebooks and state of the art technology for students and staff. Levy funds help to support the continued use of technology in and out of the classroom and to maintain and/or repair current devices.
Safety is our top priority in the Marysville School District. Both safety and transportation rely on levy funds to provide for these essential needs for students and schools. Without levy support, these areas also face further reductions.
