Mead voters reject school levy; West Valley school levy passing

A $14.6 million supplemental levy in the Mead School District was resoundingly rejected Tuesday night by district voters.


$14.6M Mead schools levy would mitigate effects of recent budget cuts

Alone among the larger districts in Spokane County, the Mead School District decided this year to mitigate its budget problems by offering a two-year supplemental levy on the Nov. 5 ballot. If the $14.6 million measure passes, the district will reinstate some paraeducators who were let go in recent cuts, maintain nursing staff at current levels, increase safety and security personnel, and expand learning opportunities for nontraditional students.
