I'm in!

Your vote makes a difference

It’s time to celebrate! Thanks to your support, we passed the 2024 replacement levy. That means our kids will continue to have the resources they need to succeed. But the work isn’t done yet! We can keep our schools strong by supporting future levies, too! 

We all benefit when schools thrive.

Levy dollars have helped Mead build one of the best districts in the state. It’s why many of us choose to live here, and why our kids – and community – continue to grow and thrive. Local support is what makes it all possible.

Great schools inspire great students.

State and federal funds cover the bare minimum of a basic education, but local funds take our schools beyond the basics to the Mead experience our community wants and expects. Without the levy, we stand to lose staff, programs, and services that make our schools – and our students – so exceptional.

Every Dollar Counts.

Because every dollar counts.

These days, we’re all dealing with rising costs and inflation – including our schools. That’s why our district is careful to budget every dollar wisely, using feedback from our community to prioritize what matters most.
