2019-2021 Educational Support & Operations LEVY FACTS

The EAST VALLEY SCHOOL DISTRICT is requesting a three year replacement levy on the upcoming February ballot. As promised when we sought support for the 2015 Construction Bond, the amount of money collected will reduce each year over the course of the levy. Levy brochures have been mailed to all East Valley addresses and residents should expect a newsletter revisiting these facts this week. Please review this brochure for more details.

National School Walkout

We are aware of the potential of a student walkout later this week in response to recent school shootings. The District discourages students from participating in such walkouts and believes that the safest place is in our classrooms. We expect our students to be in class, engaged in learning. Normal attendance policies will be followed.
