2018 Technology & Capital Projects Levy

  • Thank You for Supporting Our Schools!

    Each and every student in our community benefits every day from the resources provided by our voters, thank you for your support in successfully preparing all students for their futures.

    2018 Technology & Capital Projects Levy

    In February 2018, voters approved a six-year Technology and Capital Projects Levy providing funds to fill our district's technology and facility needs.

    A capital projects levy provides funding for items that require a larger sum to acquire, improve, or maintain a school building or a technology solution.

    Technology Needs

    The state provides a minimum amount of funding for technology in schools. At the same time, the need for technology in our school district continues to grow. In 2004, the district began plans to launch an exciting new venture: one laptop for each student.

    More and more traditional book-based curricula include digital resources. Other educational software programs can supplement learning or give students who need extra help another way to learn. Classroom technology enables teachers to enhance classroom learning. Our intended outcomes of the KSD One-to-One laptop program remain unchanged today: increase student achievement, provide a way for effective communication with students and families, and help maximize resources. 

    In addition, running a school district creates the same needs for business systems that a corporation with a budget of approximately $400 million would need. In fact, those business systems are critical since the district must report to the state, the federal government, and to our community members how district dollars are spent.

    Facility Needs

    Capital projects also ensure buildings and sites are properly maintained over time. Major systems such as roofs, hot water systems, lighting, and flooring are replaced or upgraded on a life-cycle basis. Physical education and athletic facilities can be renovated to ensure safety. Health and safety upgrades to buildings can be installed.

    Capital projects are needed to ensure major building and site systems are replaced when at the end of their useful life or that upgrades are made for educational or health and safety reasons.
