Dr. Bruckner encourages students and parents to vote

On Sept. 13 there is a very important ballot vote that students and parents should be aware of: a one-question ballot that asks voters to extend the PPEL levy by ten years.  

The PPEL levy stands for “Physical Plant and Equipment” and it covers many things that are beneficial to the school district. For example it covers the cost of general maintenance and equipment and more.

“It supports school infrastructure, roofs, driveways, furnaces, air conditioning. It also supports technology, and we are asking patrons to extend it for 10 years, not to increase, just to extend it,” said Superintendent Dr. Martha Bruckner.

Without the ten year extension the district would have to balance $2.85 million on top of the general funds it takes to run a school district. Balancing this money with cause more budget pressure that the district will have to face.

“I can’t tell anyone how to vote i can just ask people to please for all of our students who are 18 could vote and all students ask their parents to vote,” Bruckner said.
