School levy needed to replace state funding reductions
The Lewistown schools are hoping for support from the local taxpayers in the upcoming election. The administration and the school board have outlined projected cuts that are painful, but are needed in order to balance our budget. Without the voted levy, we are looking at further cuts in order to keep expenses paid. Lewistown, and schools all over Montana, are seeing state funding reductions that are putting more pressure on local property taxes.
