SCHOOL REPLACEMENT LEVY INFORMATION

A local school levy is a request from the school district to its citizens to help fund a portion of the cost of public education through local taxes that the State does not pay for. Levies are set for specific time periods and must be replaced to be maintained. This is a levy to replace our current levy which expires in 2020.

The locally elected school board, who has the responsibility for the financial management of the school district determines the levy amount and the date of the election. Based on community survey results, the Brewster Board of Directors have set an educational programs and maintenance replacement levy for submittal to local voters. 

the replacement levy will look like the following:

2021           $1.75/1000           $932,940

2022          $2.00/1000          $1,144,955

2023          $2.25/1000          $1,384,679

2024          $2.25/1000          $1,488,530

This school levy is the same levy that voters have supported for basic educational programs and operations on a yearly basis. The current levy expires on December 31, 2020 and the district must seek voter approval to replace the current levy for 2021-2024 school years. Based on voter survey results, the community felt a four year levy would be better than a two year levy.
