While the School District 622 made cuts in their own budget, they also selfishly refused to make personal sacrifices of salary and wage cuts to themselves. They knew full well the mood and anger of the taxpayers and opted not to do that. Now they want you to continue paying $297 a year or more for the next 10 years. It’s NOT a tax if you say NO, your real-estate taxes will go WAY DOWN, and you will have more discretionary income and save thousands… don’t let them treat you like you’re an idiot and say,“Oh, but your taxes won’t go up” YES THEY DID, 10 years ago!

Vote YES! This is a no-tax increase renewal of an existing operating levy that is expiring. For property owners, that means no increase in their taxes associated with this levy renewal. A successful levy would help the school district maintain, not improve, its current programs.
Because the renewal would generate the same level of funding the district currently receives, it would not improve district programming. However, it would help the district maintain its current programs. While the levy renewal will not solve the district’s financial challenges, the School Board did not feel it could ask the community for increased funding given today’s economy. The school district may still face cuts in the future, given increasing demands on schools and state finances.
The district will have to cut educational programs if the levy is not renewed. If the levy is not renewed, the district would lose $833 per student – which totals about $10 million a year, or about 9 percent of its annual budget.

If you read there current position statement, you would see that it would not ADD ANY programs, just keep it the same.


I have three kids in the school and I am a MAN, so don't think you have the corner on the kid/parent market.

Defiantly, if you want to continue to PAY TAXES that are above what school already gets from other taxes, feel free to reward them for their fiscal responsibility.

Quit being so dumb...IT A CONTINUED OVER TAXATION just because they don't want it bigger is canard, a reverse psychological chess move.

The district DID NOT tell you either that YOUR BOY DAYTON increased the amount the District is getting this new biennium budget.(TAX HIKE)did they, but that does not count does it...WHOOPS!


Naive ignorant people are famous for blindly following the herd and wasting their hared earned money, that is why they are called Democrats--lol

Just because the majority of the people are stupid does not make it right, correct or moral.
