Physical Plant and Equipment Levy Renewal

This fall the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) will be up for voter renewal during the September 10 school board elections.

Community members will have the opportunity to vote to renew the $1.34 PPEL. There will be no tax increase by renewing this levy. If you are wondering what this levy pays for, here are just a few examples:

  • $300,000 annual replacement of computers in WCSD
  • $15,000 to Band for instrument purchases and $15,000 to vocal for capital improvements
  • $500,000 for capital improvements that are done each summer at the buildings to keep them looking new
  • $400,000 last installment of the district’s $2,000,000 commitment to the Y to help with construction costs of the pool
  • Prior debt repayments for construction projects – The last major project was the approximate $4million High School and Field House Addition
  • At least 1 district vehicle replacement
