Each summer, many school districts negotiate with the union to decide how to spend the levy funds. Obviously, successful negotiation on the union’s part would mean improved wages and lighter workloads.

Each February, many school districts ask citizens to pass a local property tax levy for operations.

I recently analyzed the limited data from the state about what portion of districts’ levies are used for employee pay increases—also called ”wage enhancements.” You can find the complete list, including information for your school district, here.
