Since taking effect in January 2022 (passed February 2021) the EP&O Levy has allowed the district to continue providing services to our students at levels above the state-funded minimums.
The EP&O funds assist the district in funding smaller class sizes, athletics, and extracurricular activities, as well as support competitive pay for substitutes. The levy dollars also contribute to funding many educational support positions such as additional school nurses and psychologists, and importantly levy dollars help support more certificated teachers than state funding provides. We also have more custodial staff and paraeducators thanks in part to EP&O levy dollars.
We are grateful for the ongoing support of our community to provide excellent and well-rounded educational environments for our students.
Together, WE ARE CHENEY PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
