The district is looking to fill a budget shortfall, maintain student opportunities, address class sizes and strengthen science, technology, engineering and mathematics courses.
Superintendent Dr. Lisa Snyder and other school officials were present at a recent levy information meeting at Lakeview Elementary School. Dr. Snyder answered questions from community members and listened as others shared their frustrations with the district.
At the end of the meeting members of Unite for 194, a volunteer group that supports the levy, explained the steps they are taking to gather support.
Some of those steps, said parent Sarah Stowell, are door knocking, wearing the Unite for 194 t-shirt and showing support with a green ribbon.
Those interested in joining the efforts of Unite For 194, or want to obtain a t-shirt or ribbon can email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
