AGRUMENTS FOR AND AGAINST THE GENERAL MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS OVERRIDE:

ARGUMENTS FOR:
Passage of the override continuation is necessary to allow Round Valley Schools to provide adequate staffing so that our students will have quality education programs to help prepare them for their futures.  It will help ease the negative budget impact resulting from the reduction of federal and state dollars, and help to fund extracurricular programs.
The total cost of this override is less than $2.70 per month for an owner of a home valued at $100,000.00.
Round Valley Schools has already been forced to make drastic budget cuts.  Failure of the override will result in additional budget reductions that will result in the loss of more teachers and staff, increased class sizes, and the elimination of vital programs.
Passage of the override will allow the District to improve student learning, offer quality programs, and maintain better class sizes.  All this can be accomplished with less than $2.70 per month.  Educating our youth is an obligation and the best investment we can make to ensure a better future.  A strong school district creates a strong community.
