At the September 25 board meeting, the Deer Park School Board approved a resolution to place two funding measures on the February 13, 2024 ballot.
These funding measures would continue our work to make sure every student has access to the programs and learning spaces that help them thrive.
The two funding measures that will be on the February 13, 2024 ballot are:
Renewal of our Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) Levy to continue funding for day-to-day operations in our schools, including athletics, music, and all extracurricular activities; textbooks and materials; safety and security; STEM; and staffing that is not funded by the state (nurses, custodians, maintenance, and technology). This is a replacement of our three-year levy that must be renewed by voters.
Bond Election to address our highest facilities needs and our growing enrollment. Funds from the bond would be used to build a new elementary school to serve grades 2-5, renovate Arcadia to accommodate Home Link and their growing number of families, renovate Deer Park Middle School, and to replace the transportation building. The School Board determined that these projects are necessary to relieve overcrowding and provide safe, modern facilities to enhance the student learning environment.
