Ripley Union Lewis Huntington School District Fact Sheet

What is on the ballot?
The board has proposed a 2.6 MILL LEVY FOR THE PURPOSE OF PERMANENT IMPROVEMENTS to be spread over the next five years.

What is on the ballot?
The “permanent” means the dollars raised by the levy can ONLY (per state law) be used for permanent improvements, i.e., things that last more than five years, such as buses, facility updates, parking lots, technology, textbooks. At the end of five years, the Board will have to ask the voters to renew the levy if the need is still there.
What is the purpose of the levy?
Purpose of the levy is to benefit our students as they prepare for college and career.

mobile devices
(laptops/tablets) that will allow students to access the curriculum routinely.
