  • Last year’s levy amount—$1,750,000.
  • This year’s levy amount—$1,650,000.
  • This year’s Supplemental Levy amount had been reduced by $100,000 in order to provide tax relief and savings to our stakeholders.  In a year where the pandemic has taxed us all, we hope that this will provide our taxpayers with a small financial benefit.
  • As always, there continues to be maintenance projects that need to be addressed.  We can’t get to all of them, nor can we afford the cost of doing all of them in a single year.  However, the supplemental levy will allow us the opportunity to address and pay for a few of the prioritized projects.
  • Reminder—this Supplemental Levy funds the District’s daily operations.  Included in this is:
    • Staff salaries & benefits.
    • Supplies and materials.
    • Food Service programs.
    • Utilities
    • Transportation programs.
    • Building projects.
    • And much, much more.



What’s New for District Projects This Year?

           Along with the usual costs associated with what our levy provides—funding for utility costs,  classroom supplies & materials, and staff salaries and benefits—this year’s supplemental monies will assist towards the following projects:

  • Junior-Senior High Gym Heating System            $120,000
  • Paving of Elementary Parking & Entrance Area     $40,000



Each year, the District provides an opportunity for community input and interaction with the Board of Trustees and Administration, to talk about the projected levy and the needs of the District.  There is one session scheduled this year.  It is scheduled for:

  • Tuesday, March 2nd @ Potlatch Junior-Senior High Multi-Purpose Room—7:00 p.m.


For those who would like to attend but cannot, we will be providing a Zoom Meeting option as well.  The Zoom link is:
