Keep supporting our schools

Calling all Tonasket voters! It is time to renew our school levy. This is a replacement levy, NOT a new tax. These funds represent roughly 15 percent of the school district budget and provide much-needed dollars for upkeep of our beautiful buildings and grounds; curriculum upgrades and improvements; continuing education for staff; new school buses and special programs, such as senior projects and sixth-grade camp.

If this levy is unsuccessful, we will not only be forced to cut services within the district; we will also miss out on receiving nearly $600,000 in matching funds from the state. Let’s demonstrate our community pride and the value we place on our kids’ education: Vote YES for Tonasket Schools on March 11!
