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.
