Preston BOE holds informational session on special levy

KINGWOOD — About a dozen people attended an informational session Jan. 3 about the Preston Board of Education’s plans for a special levy.

Superintendent Steve Wotring explained that the proposed levy is “student centered” and was based on comments by all 10 Local School Improvement Councils and a survey completed by more than 500 people.

The board is looking at a five-year levy, with funds to be spent in general maintenance, improvements and equipment; safety and security; technology; curricular, extra-curricular and co-curricular activities; student, staff and senior citizen athletic and fine arts admission fees; instructional supplies and materials; after-school, extended year, summer, virtual, mobile and alternative ed programs; and community facility use.
