Levy increase would bring district in line with metro average
District 622 leaders are looking to double per-pupil spending in the district at the start of the 2016-2017 school year. Voters will likely see two questions on the ballot in November, asking for approval of an operating levy increase of $900 per pupil, and a $3 million capital projects levy. The capital projects levy would be used to fund the purchase, installation, and maintenance of software and technology for classroom instruction. Both levy proposals are for a period of 10 years.
