Replacement Educational Programs & Operations Levy ($1.50)
Kettle Falls School District EP&O Levy and Capital Levy for Security/Technology February 12, 2019
The purpose of an Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) levy is to provide general operating funds that supplement state and federal funding for public schools. Levies were intended to provide for extras beyond basic education, but have become a significant funding source for most school districts due to diminishing funding from the state and federal government.
The purpose of the capital levy for Security/ Technology is to pay for security and technology equipment including hardware and software. Although cameras have been installed in each building, there are limited outdoor cameras at the High School. Like the High School, we are also planning on installing a doorbell camera at the Middle School. The funds for technology will pay for educational software and scheduled network and security hardware and software upgrades.
