School board considers 2014 levies | Tahoma School District

Tahoma School Board will consider placing two replacement levies on the Feb. 11 election ballot when the board meets on Dec. 17. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Board Room at Central Services Center.

The levies, which provide more than 20 percent of the district’s operating funds and all of its technology funding, typically run for four years. The current operations and technology levies expire at the end of 2014. The proposed levies would be in place from 2015 through 2018.

In addition to considering the levies, the school board will review the district’s classroom technology plan on Tuesday.

Tahoma voters approved a construction bond measure on Nov. 5 to pay for a new Tahoma High School, remodeling Lake Wilderness Elementary School and major repair and maintenance at other schools in the district. The bond measure is for construction and repair only; it does not pay for operating expenses or classroom technology.

Tahoma voters approved the current operations and technology levies in 2010.
