The votes have been counted and voters have approved the plan to revoke and replace the GFW Public Schools operating levy at a lower rate. Vote totals are Yes - 803 No - 230 As promised during the April 2023 bond election, the district’s current operating levy of $1,406.30 per pupil will now be replaced with a new authorization of $992.40 per pupil subject to inflationary increases. The district is confident that great programming will be maintained with a single site and a reduced operating levy. The levy will remain in place for ten years. The board will canvass the election results on November 15, 2023. Thank you to everyone who participated in this election and for your continued collaboration and support of GFW Public Schools!
