This replacement levy is not a new tax. It replaces a three-year levy that was approved by voters in 2021 and expires at the end of 2024.
Our Replacement Educational Programs & Operations (EP&O) Levy provides local funding that bridges the gap between what the state and federal governments pay and the actual costs of operating our schools. Levies support essential programs, staff, and services valued by our community.
What are school levies for?
Levies provide local funding that bridges the gap between what the state and federal governments pay and the actual costs of operating our schools at the level our community wants and expects. Levies support essential programs, staff and services and make up about 12% of the district's total operating revenue.
The replacement levy supports the Riverside School District's commitment to learning and teaching, focuses on opportunity and access for all students, and ensures ongoing funding for essential services that meet the needs of our students and families.
School levies also activate equalization dollars from the state called Local Effort Assistance (LEA). When a levy is passed, the state provides additional funding to enhance student access to educational enrichments.
