Students need levy proposals

On Feb. 11, the Marysville School District is asking voters to replace the Educational Programs Levy for tax years 2015-2018. This levy is not a new levy but replaces the previous levy that will expire this year. This levy is essential to help cover the costs in several areas, including lowering class sizes, transportation, athletics, special education, professional development for staff, and school supplies.

The district is asking for a new levy for technology, which would also replace outdated computers in each classroom. The last levy for technology expired in 2005. After reviewing the information and understanding that supporting our schools is paramount for the future of our children, we encourage all community members to vote yes on both levy proposals.

Thank you for the your continued support of our Marysville children.

Mary Jane Miller

and the 14 other members of the Marysville Mountview High School Site Council
