The Stoutland School District is asking voters for a levy increase that will allow it to make some academic and security improvements.
The issue will appear on the April 3 election ballot.
The district is asking voters to approve a Proposition C full waiver to provide additional local funding for the district.
With continual reductions in federal and state funding, School Superintendent Doug Dahman said this was the best option for increased revenue to support the school district.
“The normal revenues have been going down a little bit each year and of course the cost of everything else has been going up, so in order for us to stay up with those areas we feel are really important for our students, we feel like we need that extra local funding,” Dahman said.  “We’re still getting state and federal fundings, but we need our local funding to stay up with everything else.”
