Prebles said he’s glad to be able to have some positive news to open the school year, especially after the recent financial situation and budget cuts cast a “grey cloud over the district.”
Voters passed the district’s 6.9-mill renewal levy by a wide margin during Tuesday’s election. with nearly 61 percent of the vote.
“I am pleased that the voters chose to pass this levy for a continuing period,” said Board of Education President George J. Balasko.
“It adds a small measure of financial stability to our district,” he added.
The renewal levy was on the ballot as a continuing levy, which means that it won’t return to the ballot in the future, but will instead continue to raise money for the district.
“We’re never not going to need the money,” Balasko said.
He noted that the measure saves money for the district—and taxpayers—because they don’t have to pay to put it back on the ballot.
Prebles said the district will continue to work to manage money efficiently and be a good partner to the communities it serves.
