Wapato School District voters have an opportuntity tonight to learn more about the Educational, Maintenance and Operations Replacemnt Levy proposal that will appear on the February 11, 2014 ballot. The 4-year proposal is not a new tax. It will simply renew and replace the current 4-year levy Wapato School District voters overwhelmingly approved (64%-YES) in February 2010. The current levy is set to expire in December of this year.
State and Federal dollars do not fully fund the day-to-day operations of Wapato Public Schools. To fund the gap, the District must also rely on voters to approve the replacement levy to support essential educational programs and activities for students.
Tonight's forum will begin at 6:00 p.m. and will be held in Wapato High School's temporary cafeteria at 1103 S. Wasco Avenue.
