The Corvallis School District will host its second informational meeting about its proposed school levy from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, in the Corvallis High School library.
The meeting will provide an opportunity for the community to become fully informed about the need for and impact of the levy. The focus of the meeting will be to answer any questions that the public may have about the ballot issue scheduled for a vote May 6.
"The election on May 6 will have a major impact on the ability of our school district to maintain the quality of education for students in Corvallis that has been the product of the combined efforts of school staff, parents and community members," said School Board Chairwoman Tonia Bloom.
"We think it is so important that voters be well-informed before they make their decision and cast their vote," she said.
The levy would require about 10 mills to raise $100,000 to help address the budgetary impact of declining state funding. For property with a taxable market value of $100,000 there would be an annual cost of $37.95 or $3.16 per month.
