2021 Levy

Levies and bonds allow districts to offer the programs, services and facilities that help provide quality education. Ephrata School District staff remain committed to fiscally honor the established tax rate projections that will help us on our mission to focus on kids and learning.

Athletics - Security - Technology - Transportation - Food services - these are just a few of the needs in the Ephrata School District paid for by local levy dollars.

Educational Programs & Operations Levy

The current levy funds the difference between what the state provides and what it actually costs to educate Ephrata students. The levy supports services and costs not funded – or are only partially funded – by the state’s basic education allocation. Examples include:

  • Extra and co-curricular activities such as athletics, music, drama, and clubs

  • School safety including staff and technology at the high schools

  • Well-maintained, clean and welcoming schools, facilities and grounds

  • Student bus transportation services

  • Instructional and support staff including substitute teachers

  • Staff professional development and training

  • Food services, including the making and planning of meals
