North Clackamas Schools seeks public input on Local Option

As part of an exploration of several revenue-raising strategies to help schools weather the economic downturn, the North Clackamas School Board is considering whether or not to place a local option levy on the ballot in 2012.

The short-term property tax could be used for school operating expenses for purposes approved by voters. This could include hiring teachers to reduce class sizes, increasing the number of school days, purchasing new textbooks that address more challenging standards, adding classroom technology, or adding education programs, such as more advanced placement courses. The tax would last three to five years depending on voter approval.
