Levy Referendum Fast Fact
Voters in District 191 will consider two school funding requests on the Nov. 7 ballot. If voters do not approve both funding requests, the district would need to cut more than $10 million from the budget. These cuts would likely include approximately 80 teachers, school support staff and district-level staff, student support services like counselors and cultural liaisons, programming including Pathways and fine arts, magnet and activity transportation.
