As part of the school district’s long-range financial and program planning, the Orono School Board unanimously approved placing a request for voters to renew the district’s technology levy on the November 8, 2022, general election ballot. Because the request is a straight renewal of an existing levy, there will be no tax increase for property owners if approved by voters. The levy generates approximately $1.2 million annually and will expire if not renewed. Funds are directly tied to spending in three key areas: classroom learning and teacher training, reliable access, and security and technical support. District staff will now prepare informational materials about the tech levy renewal request so residents are aware and can make an informed vote on November 8. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are invited to view the recorded School Board presentation (May 9, 2022 meeting) and read the press release.
