- Form a recommendation to the Superintendent that includes the next four-year Maintenance and Operations and Technology replacement levies.
- Recommend levy amounts to the Superintendent for both replacement levies (Maintenance and Operations and Technology) to be placed on a special election ballot as early as February 9, 2016.
The basis for its establishment:
Methow Valley Public Schools’ general operations (M&O) levy, which comprises nearly 25 percent of its annual budget, is expiring. The previous technology levy, which supports the integration of technology in the classroom, is also expiring. Both levies will be placed on the ballot as early as February 9, 2016.
