RWhat is the difference between a levy and a bond?
A: A levy is a tax that supplements funding for schools. State levy funds will pay for basic educational needs and local levy funding will pay for extra & co-curricular activities such as athletics, clubs, after school programs, and many student enrichment activities.
A bond is voter approved debt that funds construction and renovation projects like our High School and Freshman Campus projects.
