About the Levy
Teachers, educational assistants, and staff are the backbone of our schools and we are faced with the potential of losing nearly 12% of our current staff due to budget cuts in the coming years.
The Parkrose School District currently estimates a $3.2 million dollar budget shortfall for the 2023-24 school year, leaving the District unable to maintain current services and programs. A $3.2 million dollar budget reduction is equivalent to eliminating 26 teaching positions or 18 school days.
How would the Levy help with this anticipated budget shortfall?
If passed, the proposed levy would raise $2 Million for Parkrose School District and would retain approximately 22 educational positions (60% teachers, 40% classroom instructional assistants).
