Welcome to our community's hub for information regarding the replacement levy for West Ada School District on the upcoming May 21 election and its impact on our schools. As valued members of our educational community, your engagement and participation in this election are crucial.

About the Replacement Levy:

On the ballot, you will find a measure directly impacting the quality of education and safety within our district: the West Ada School District Supplemental Levy. Understanding that this levy isn't a new tax but rather a replacement levy is vital, as it's designed to maintain crucial support for our educational programs.

  • Salaries and benefits for 152 Teachers - $12,983,251

  • Contracted Services for 19 Student Resource Officers - $867,404

  • TOTAL ANNUAL LEVY AMOUNT: $13,850,655/year

Financial Implications:

The estimated average annual cost to taxpayers on the proposed levy is $27.13 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value, per year, based on current conditions. This proposed levy replaces an existing levy expiring on June 30, 2024, which currently costs $27.43 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value. Therefore, if approved, the proposed levy is expected to decrease the tax per $100,000 of taxable assessed value by $0.30.

Impact on Our Schools:

Funds generated from this replacement levy maintain high educational standards and safety within our schools. They will be allocated towards sustaining the salaries and benefits of 152 current teachers and supporting contracted services for 19 School Resource Officers (SROs), ensuring classrooms remain adequately staffed and our learning environment remains secure.
