Lakota Places Levy on Ballot -- First of Two Votes
The Lakota Board of Education took the first of two steps necessary to place a 7.9 mil Emergency levy onthe November ballot. The levy will raise approximately $21,750,000 per year
for ten years for the dis-trict
, and is estimated to
cost approximately $231 per year per $100,000 home valuation (or$19.29 per month).
Lakota is facing an expected negative cash balance of $10 million in 2012, and the funding received from
this levy will ensure that Lakota is able to maintain basic classroom instruction for the 18,500students who attend 22 Lakota schools
. The Board will approve the second vote later this month tomeet the requirements for placing a levy on the ballot.
Since 2008, Lakota has cut $13 million from its daily operating budget in an effort to tightenits belt in these tough economic times. The reductions have included the elimination of over75 positions,
changes to services such as transportation, and fee increases. Additionally, while workingto maintain the classroom, administrators are now splitting buildings in some cases as well as the educa-tional support staff across the district being significantly reduced. Student offerings such as athletics andextracurricular activities have also been reduced in an effort to remove dollars from the operatingbudget.
 “While a 7.9 mil levy will help us in maintaining our programs, unfortunately, in order to re-main solvent as required by the state, we will need to continue our reductions and removeeven more from our budget,” remarked Superintendent Mike Taylor. “We have already under-gone many painful rounds of budget reductions which is leading to the dismantling of the ex-cellent educational programs that this community has built over time, and I am not lookingforward to the continuation of this. Should this levy not pass, we will be forced to offer Lakotastudents state minimum education.” He continued.
