School board approves three-year M&O levy plan

Three years, $14.7 million.

That’s the maintenance and operations levy proposal Sequim’s school board directors agreed to put before voters in a special election on Feb. 9, 2010.

Board members unanimously agreed to the plan after about two hours of debate on Tuesday afternoon.

The proposal generates $4.05 million in 2011, $4.9 million in 2012 and $5.78 million in 2013 from local taxpayers to reduce class sizes, pay for curriculum upgrades, purchase supplies and materials, upgrade facilities and restore a number of programs the district has cut recently.
