HR Schools Seek Option Levy Renewal

The Hood River County School District is asking voters to renew the district’s five-year local option levy in the May 15 election.  The levy has been in place for 13 years, and the district is once again seeking a rate of $1.25 per thousand dollars of assessed property value, unchanged from the past ten years.  District board member Rich Truax says the levy funds the equivalent of 29 full-time positions, and allows the district to offer a wider range of programs.  The local option levy generates about $2.5 million, and the district then receives a state match of approximately $560,000.
