Thanks for voting for M&O Levy

Dear Editor,

I would like to express my appreciation for the members of our communities who took the opportunity to cast a vote in favor of local school M and O levies. These levies are an important part of the way local schools educational and maintenance needs.

I would especially like to thank the voters in the Tonasket School District who supported the Tonasket M and O Levy at over 64 percent approval rate. The passage of this Levy will allow the district improve the education delivered to our students and to continue to maintain our buildings and grounds. A very heartfelt thank you must also go out to the Tonasket Levy Committee for all of the vigorous hard work that they did in support of the Levy and Bond votes.

As most people know the Capital Improvement Bond received a majority vote but not enough to meet the 60 percent required for passage. The District is currently seeking input from all sectors of the community on how to proceed forward in meeting the needs put forth in the Bond vote.

Again thank you every one who voted in the February 11 election.

Jerry Asmussen

Tonasket School Board
