EP&O Levy Overview

We want to ensure our students have access to staff, programs, and course offerings to be successful and graduate future ready. To this end, every four years, LWSD asks voters to approve an Educational Programs & Operations Levy, to fund programs and operations that are not funded by the state. Because levies are requested at 4 year intervals, they replace each other and do not raise the tax rate.

The 2018 EP&O levy will raise $63.5M per year, or $1.03 per $1000 Assessed Value (AV), a decrease of from $1.26/$1000 AV.
