The Case for Issue 3

  • •The funds from this levy continue current class sizes, services, programs and needed repairs, and provide the current programming to a growing student population.
    •The 2012 levy covered the need for new funds for the past two school years, and this planned 2014 levy raises the funds needed for the next two years.
    •By law, levies collect a set dollar amount that does not increase with student enrollment or increased home values.
    •Additional funds are required over the next two years to cover the costs of 200 new students, more teachers and staff to keep class sizes at current levels, and increases in fixed costs, such as fuel and utilities.
    •NAPLS has contained $12 million in costs since 2011, while spending wisely. The district spends the average amount per student while receiving the lowest state support in Franklin County.
