Good afternoon Cardinal families.
As we have shared in the treasurer's updates over the last three years, our district has encountered several challenges regarding school funding. Our schools have dealt with reductions in both state and federal funding. We have shared in our publications that the district would have to, at some point, address the issues of flat and reduced funding. That time is now.
At the January 10, 2022 meeting, the Board of Education will consider passage of a resolution of the necessity for an 8.9 mill operating levy. If the Board of Education decides to proceed, a second resolution will be considered at the meeting on January 27, 2022. If this resolution is passed, the levy will be placed on the election ballot on May 3rd, 2022. The board of education meetings will be open to the public and the community is encouraged to attend.
