2024 Brewster School District Replacement Levy
Levy Dollar Breakdown
Breaking down levy dollars:
Here's a projected breakdown of how the levy dollars are expected to be allocated, filling the gaps left by the state's underfunding to ensure our students receive the comprehensive education and enrichment as well as the support they deserve. Your support for this levy is an investment in the well-rounded development and success of our community's future leaders.
Breaking down what this levy pays for:
Most of this levy would pay for staff to maintain class sizes, to offer services the state doesn’t consider “basic education,” and to support our students. Below is an estimated breakdown of where the levy dollars are forecast to be spent to supplement underfunding by the state.
The levy funds the entirety of the
district’s General Fund spending
on athletics and activities — as
the state does not consider these
part of “basic education.”
The levy also pays for the
district’s student supervision and
security staff. The state provides
very little funding for safety
and security services.
Levy dollars are used for staff in
each and every school building
in our district, including
teachers, nurses, paraeducators,
counselors, and more.
*If voters approve this levy, the school district’s total tax rate including the replacement levy and bonds will be lower than it was in 2023.
