DPSD seeks Voters’ Pamphlet "For" and "Against" statement authors for Feb. 2024 Levy and Bond Elections
At the September 25, 2023 board meeting, the Deer Park School Board passed two resolutions. The first resolution was for a replacement of the expiring Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) Levy and a measure for Bonds to Construct and Renovate School Facilities.
Information about the EP&O Levy and Bonds to Construct and Renovate School Facilities can be found on the DPSD bond and levy page.
DPSD is currently seeking applications from individuals interested in serving on committees to write the Spokane, Stevens, and Pend Oreille County Local Voters’ Pamphlet statements supporting or opposing each measure to appear on the February 13, 2024 Special Election ballot. (As per WA state law RCW 29A.32.280)
How to apply to write the supporting or opposing statements:
If you are interested in being considered by the district for appointment to either committee for either measure, please note the following:

If you meet these requirements and would like to volunteer, please email your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, which position you represent, and a brief statement of interest for consideration to email@example.com no later than noon on Friday, December 8, 2023.
