South Whidbey School Board discusses maintenance levy

There is a lot of work to be done around the South Whidbey School District. The problem is, there may not be enough money for all of it.

The South Whidbey School Board will discuss a possible levy increase request to pay for about 30 projects across the district’s three schools and other district facilities at tonight’s meeting. Some of the maintenance issues included technology upgrades and replacements, security cameras, painting, track resurfacing at the high school and middle school, carpeting at Langley Middle School and roof and siding fixes at South Whidbey Elementary School.

The school board will also review creating a long-range planning committee. The committee was proposed by District Superintendent Jo Moccia to review programs and services for students, enrollment trends, finances and facilities evaluations. Moccia will be empowered to choose the committee’s 20 members, which include board members, district staff, teachers and other school employees, as well as community members, students and recent graduates.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. tonight at the board room at the South Whidbey Primary Campus, 5476 S. Maxwelton Road.
