Westonka, like all other school districts in the state, relies on state and local funds to operate and maintain our schools.
Question 1 is a no-tax increase renewal of an existing operating levy to help pay for teachers, instructional materials and other learning supports.
- These funds provide financial stability, enabling the district to maintain its commitment to strong educational programs that deliver results.
- If this levy is not renewed, the district will have to cut $1.6 million—equivalent to approximately 33 teachers.
- There is no tax increase, as this levy simply continues existing funding.
Question 2 is a $23.3 million bond to fund deferred maintenance of district buildings.
- It would address roofs, exteriors, mechanical/electrical systems, and parking lots.
- The estimated tax impact on a $300,000 home would be $9/month.*
Question 3 is a $6.6 million bond to fund additional improvements to the learning environment, safety and accessibility.
