As spring approaches, we are looking for your support and help in maintaining the excellent educational opportunities that our children have at Canyon Creek School District. This year Canyon Creek School Trustees have voted and approved in asking our local taxpayers to support a Technology Levy. A Technology Levy is designed to fund technology acquisition and depreciation. This levy is not a general fund levy but rather a specific levy that is designed to help schools stay current with technology needs. Currently technology demand at Canyon Creek is at an all-time high. Students are using technology in many different ways at school and our computers specifically are being used all day long by our students. Obviously with this type of usage, we wear our technology out very rapidly. The idea of the Technology Levy is to continue to be able to replace our computers and printers when needed. By approving out Technology Levy we are able to support our students' needs and allow for them to use technology in a way that gives them the skills they need to be ready for the workforce. Computers are no longer an option in schools but a necessary item to keep up with the modern educational trends.
Currently all expenses for technology come from our general fund. This is a huge burden on our general fund which is already very stretched, so it limits our ability to use this money on technology. The end result being that we are not able to replace our technology, resulting in outdated equipment or a shortage of access for our students. This levy is very important for our students' needs, I cannot express in words how much this levy would help our school not only in providing current technology equipment for our students, but also taking some pressure off of our general fund so that we can stretch our budget further to keep from asking our community to pay more taxes for our general fund.
I encourage all of our tax payers to register to vote and share your voice in this decision. I am grateful for the support we have at Canyon Creek School and encourage all of you to make a difference in your children's education and future by voting. I encourage you to call me at the school if you need more information to make your voting decision. 406-656-4471
Thank you for your support!
