School Board Elections Reminder
Waukee Community Members,
This is a reminder that School Board Elections across the state are tomorrow, September 10. We urge you to vote! In the Waukee election there are 7 candidates vying for 4 seats, with one incumbent running. Your local school board has a significant impact on the day-to-day operations of the district. Your votes/voice in selecting representation on that board is huge. Please take the time to acquaint yourself with the candidates and make an educated vote.
Also on the ballot are three levies. The Waukee Physical Plant and Equipment (PPEL) levy is up for renewal. That levy is used to help build school facilities, purchase band and vocal equipment, purchase vehicles, fund technology purchases as well as building repairs. There are two levies for Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC). All three levies on the ballot currently exist and are part of the existing tax structure.
The polling place for Waukee Community School District is the district administration office, 560 Southeast University Avenue, Waukee, IA 50263. The polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Thank you for your attention to Waukee Schools!
